We accept gently used or new children’s items ranging from infant through juniors as well as items for pregnant mothers. We are always in need of children’s clothing especially in size 4 through juniors (14/16). We also accept toys for all ages, older kid’s toys like Lego sets and Barbie’s are usually in short supply. We also need strollers (we get a lot of requests for double strollers), cribs, pack n plays, high chairs, non expired car seats, large outdoor toys, bicycles etc. Anything a family needs to take care of their children, as well as some fun items because for some families The Kid’s Pantry is the only place they can do their Christmas shopping.
We kindly ask that all donations be placed in a closed box or bag, and that all pieces are contained together for multi piece items. We cannot accept any expired food or carseats.
You can drop off donations any business day at 400 E Gregory St, there is a shed behind the building for donations. Items donated become property of The Kid's Pantry until given to a new family.
If you’d like to help The Kid’s Pantry continue to grow and help the community please consider giving, all donations are tax deductible. We have office expenses, bags and bins we buy regularly, costs for keeping up with The Kid’s Pantry truck, advertising to raise awareness for the pantry, as well as advertising for our giveaways. We are outgrowing our current location and are hoping to one day have a warehouse where we can process and store all the incoming donations and have The Pantry open more hours for visitors to get what they need. Our staff is currently all volunteer and we’d love to one day have a salary for those that put in countless hours each week.
