Individuals, churches, and groups provide all the items we distribute. This is done through donations of funds or goods.

Many times, a host will throw a baby shower or housewarming shower to help fill our shelves. Whether you are interested in giving new or "like-new" used items, the following will serve as a helpful guide to know what we accept. Thank you for your participation in this practical way!

Donated Goods Guide

You will find an (*) next to those which are currently low in stock. We do not take adult clothing or food. If you have any questions, feel free to send us a message via the Contact page.

Please note: All used items must be recently cleaned/laundered and in excellent condition (not faded, torn, stained, pilled, etc.).
