Hi, My name is Richard, the company I work for has authorized me to look for a suitable company to handle our donation of baby items – mainly baby diaper bags and baby blankets. Let me know if you are interested and we can discuss and go from there. Thank you.
Hello Richard, thank you for your message. CharityWishList.ca provides information on charities that want various types of non-monetary donations (it doesn’t accept donations itself) But at this link on my website, there is a charity that you could contact directly https://charitywishlist.ca/select-province/ontario/toronto/donate-baby-clothes-baby-items-toronto-area/
Thank you for your willingness to share with charities near you.
Sincerely, Michelle Beaupre, Owner CharityWishList.ca
Hi there, I have some diapers, baby food, a diaper bag and other items to donate. Where would be the best place to do so? I don’t want to just toss them out.
Hi Agueda, thank you for your inquiry. I would suggest calling Jessie’s at 416-365-1888. They may be interested in the baby items that you would like to donate. http://jessiescentre.org CharityWishList.ca is like a directory, it doesn’t collect anything itself, just let’s you know suggestions as to which charity near you likely wants what you want to give away. Hope this helps, Michelle Beaupre – owner, CharityWishList.ca
I have an assortment of diapers, bottles, & baby products (cream, shampoo)
Would you be interested in these and when would be the best time to drop them off?
Hello Jennifer, thank you for your question. Please call 416-365-1888 about dropping off donations at Jessie’s, 205 Parliament St. (CharityWishList.ca doesn’t collect items itself.)
HI, I have a gently used crib that I am looking to donate. Can you please advise if there is a charity that will do a pick up as the Crib will not fit in my car?
I’m not sure if my first message was received. I have a gently used crib that I want to donate, are their any charities that do pick up as it won’t fit in my car to do a drop off?
Hi Ana, thanks for your offer of a crib. Perhaps try Jessie’s, The June Callwood Centre for Young Women. Call 416-365-1888.
Or, Salvation Army Thrift Store near you … https://www.thriftstore.ca/central-ontario/donation-pick-services
CharityWishList.ca is like a directory, it doesn’t accept items itself.
You haven’t answered the question of “do you know someone who will pick items like a crib up?” You suggest places where they need to be dropped off.
Hi Pat, you would need to contact the charity of choice directly for their availability to pick-up items like a crib. CharityWishList.ca is like a directory, providing you with leads on which charities near you likely want your items. Then you need to contact them and make arrangements.Their specific needs may change from time to time and their pick-up range may or may not include where you live so best to call or email first.
Hope this helps,
Michelle Beaupre, Owner CharityWishList.ca
Good Day I have 2big cycle garbage bags full of baby clothes from 6-24 months. All have been washed and in very good condition . I do not want to put the clothes in outside bins that are picked up once a week or month. Will you accept these bags and if not could you direct me to families or single mothers that would accept .
Thank yo Francois
That’s awesome! There are two charities listed on my website that look for baby clothes. Have you tried them? CharityWishList is like a directory, you would need to contact the charity directly (I don’t collect or accept anything myself).
If neither are interested, please let me know and I will look for a third option.
Hi ?? my name is Sasha I just had my newborn Camille on the ninth she was three weeks early via csection. Sadly we are in a hotel from red cross due to a house fire we had and I lost everything. We have next to nothing for her I wonder if someone may help me. Please help us.
Hi Sasha, congratulations on the birth of Camille! This must be a very stressful period for you and your new family. There are organizations that exist especially for emergencies like the one you are experiencing. There is help with baby clothes, clothes for all ages, furniture and household items too when you are ready. The best one I can suggest would be Safety Net Services. They have an emergency fund as well as all the above mentioned items that they collect on an on going basis for exactly the type of situation you are in.
Don’t hesitate to reach out to them. https://www.safetynetservices.ca/services/
You may also want to contact local media if you are prepared for a lot of attention and offers of help. You take the help you need now. Eventually when things are better you can maybe pay it forward by helping others through volunteering or donating the baby clothes back when you no longer have a need for them.
If you still need additional help after contacting the above, please let me know and I will see about other organizations. Note that CharityWishList.ca is like a directory for people wanting to donate items to charities near them – I don’t collect any items myself and don’t distribute items. You can also try calling 212 or website 211.ca
Beat of luck, eventually this experience will be in your rearview mirror. You can do this.
Hope this helps,
