Donate Goods

Helping a family meet an immediate or seasonal need with a small, simple donation helps bring stability, easing the burden of homelessness and allowing the family to focus on more important long-term goals.

If you have goods you hope to donate, please email in advance of delivery due to space constraints at our program sites and office. We cannot accept gently used or other in-kind donations without prior approval.

Here are our most current needs (donations should be in-season and brand new):

  • Any items on our Amazon Wish List
  • Play kits (list provided upon request)
  • Baby teething toys, stroller toys, toddler books, and baby floor gyms
  • Grocery store gift cards (Safeway, Giant, and Target) in increments of $10 or $25
  • Snack packs (list provided upon request)

Items We DO NOT Need:

To keep up with our needs in real time, watch our Facebook and Twitter pages for immediate needs.

Please consider donating clothing items at a MetroAid Bin near you. MetroAid gives a portion of funds raised through sourcing and selling donated clothing to Playtime.

And we always appreciate general monetary donations, which allow us to meet the needs of new families and children coming into shelter.
