Where to Take the Baby Stuff :: {10} Organizations That Need Your Used Baby Items

0

The time has come. Your precious bundle of joy is now a toddler or even a preschooler. He no longer fits in those adorable tiny clothes. She has outgrown the Boppy, the bouncer, the bassinet. You’re done with the maternity clothes and breast pump. And whether saying goodbye to this phase fills you with joy or a bittersweet sadness, all the baby stuff has to go.

Many moms opt to sell or consign their used baby clothing and other gear. And if that’s your thing, you go, girl! However, there are many wonderful organizations in the Dallas area that are in desperate need of these items. Donating is a great way to support other moms, knowing that the things you and your little one no longer need will be used and appreciated by someone else. And you can feel good about it too.

From supporting victims of domestic violence to mentoring teen moms, the following ten local organizations represent a variety of causes. And all of them accept gently used/like new baby, toddler, and maternity items, using your donations to help other parents.  

Where to donate your used baby items:
