mmmm, I just thought up a cute charity project, but since you said you don't care to do those, you might see if any girl scouts, shelters, or elderly people are interested. I would make knot dolls with some of the yarn, and then give the dolls and the remaining yarn to someplace, where maybe a)girls/kids could learn to knit scarves, hats, and other clothing for the dolls using the leftover yarn; b) volunteers could make doll clothing and donate to needy children a doll that has clothes to play dress up.
Knot dolls are really easy, too.

ETA: oops, skipped the post where you said your neighbor took it - thats wonderful!
