For the months of July, August and September, I will be collecting donations of infant and toddler essentials for Room to Grow. Room to Grow is dedicated to enhancing the lives of babies born into poverty during their critical first three years. Families visit the program every three months until their child turns three. At each visit, they meet with Room to Grows staff social workers and receive one-on-one parenting support, connections to community resources, and all the essential items needed to ensure a healthy and secure start for their child.
Room to Grow accepts in-kind donations of new and nearly new:
- Clothing (up to size 5T)
- Shoes (up to size 13)
- Feeding supplies (plates, bowls, utensils)
- Safety supplies
- Gear (diaper bags, infant monitors, potties, play yards, carriers, strollers, etc.)

It’s easy! Just bring in an item from the list to your appointment, and I’ll give you a $10 discount! And, you’ll be making a real difference in the lives of babies born into poverty. I’ll keep you posted on our progress and will let you know how much we raise before I make the drop off.
