Baby Clothing and Equipment Donation
Your donations help support families without the resources to provide all of the “stuff” that babies and kids need. Thank you for your generous support!
The Center for Early Relationship Support® (CERS) accepts new and gently used baby clothing and gear that are clean, in good condition, and without stains or rips. We ask for “gently used” items that are clean, in good condition, and without stains or rips. If you wonder if an item is suitable to donate, ask yourself if you would give it to your own child or pass it on to a relative or neighbor.
