    My youngest child is 3 months old and he will be our family’s last child. As he outgrows his clothes, toys, etc. I’d love to donate them somewhere so that they can be put to good use. Are there good venues to donate gently used baby items?

    There is always the Salvation Army or Goodwill, but another good option is Once Upon a Child. It’s a resale shop that will give you a little money for what you bring in (clothes, accessories, toys, furniture, anything!). Another good place to donate is a church. Many churches have nurseries but don’t really have a budget for extras. They tend to operate on donations. Hope this helps!!

    There are really convenient Goodwill drop boxes located across my town – I’m sure it’s the case for you, too. Check near local pharmacies, grocery stores or churches.

    Isis in Prudential has a dropbox where you can drop off gently used items for a "store" for local families in need that require baby supplies but cannot afford it.  I’ll double check, but my Great Beginnings teacher at Isis mentioned that to us.

    Check with your center as well, we just completed a clothing, toy and toiletry drive for a domestic abuse/homeless shelter, Safe House Denver, we collected items at the school and I am bringing them down to the agency next week,  I know several other BH centers are doing similar projects so check with your PAG Parent or Director at the school
