Things To Consider When Donating

We truly want these kids to feel confident and proud in what they receive, so please make sure to check clothing for stains, holes, wear etc before donating. Think about whether or not you would give this to your nephew or your friend’s child to wear. We cannot accept clothing with familial text on it – mommy, daddy, auntie etc.

For baby gear, especially car seats, please check them for for expiration dates and recalls as well as wear, holes and stains. We want our littlest recipients to be safe and happy!
