Running an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization comes with costs. We purchase some items that we do not get donated, we pay rent, and we have other operational expenses. Your financial support will be put to good use right away.
Please click GIVE NOW and make a donation today!
By appointment only, we accept new and gently used newborn-to-adult size, all-season clothing including pajamas, coats, hats, gloves, winter boots, and shoes. See "Prepare Your Stuff" to get started.
Disclosure: Sometimes, we have a surplus of certain sizes that we don't have room for. Don't worry - we save the best for children in foster care. Other items might be sold at our M2M sale with 100% of the proceeds used for operating costs.
Gently used items must be clean, freshly washed, and sorted by size/gender/season from a non-smoking environment.
Please label by size/gender/season on the outside of the plastic bags (no cardboard boxes). This really helps our volunteers!
