Donate Items

**We are unable to accept donations of handmade blankets at this time.**

Your gift of new clothing, children’s supplies, and other items will help us care for children and families.

Check out our wish list below, which contains some of our most critical needs.

Guidelines & Restrictions

We strive to ensure that all children in our care can use the supplies that have been donated, meaning that only new, unused items can be accepted. This guarantees our children aren’t exposed to any odors, pet dander or hair, or other potential allergens.

We love receiving fragrance-free and sensitive-formula products, and items that reflect and support our culturally diverse population, including hygiene products for African American skin and hair. Our children are newborn to six years old.

Please note that we cannot accept the following: any used items, stuffed animals, items with latex, items that promote violence (toy weapons or cartoon characters with weapons), religious-themed items, pre-assembled or pre-giftwrapped items, or cribs.

Donation Drop Off Hours

If you have questions or are planning a larger donation, please call us at 763 591 0400. The Nursery is located at: 4544 4th Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55419.
