Through community donations, we are able to run an elegant closet full of gently used and new clothing and shoes
from newborn to teen for children who are currently in foster care.
We are thankful for the incredible space we are currently located at that gives children an opportunity to truly
shop and take home what is needed. This also give foster parents a much needed place to rely
on when a child comes into care and as children quickly grow.
From clothing to cribs, shoes to strollers...we likely have it available because of our amazing community!
#1. Your Donations
We take seasonal items that are able to assist children and families. New, or like new clothes are appreciated. If donating at our office, we will meet you inside the right door and accept your donations. You will also receive a tax deductible receipt for your donation if needed.
Clothing, new or gently used: Preemie-Teen
Coats/Jackets (in season)
Dothan: American Red Cross
Headland: Fostering Hope
We also accept gently used baby gear. Strollers, carseats, jumparoos as well as cribs and beds. If you are bringing a large item such as a bed, please let us know before you arrive so we can make sure to have help on hand to bring into the office should you need help.
We will take it from there!
Your donations are lovingly sorted and prepared for the new little one who will be able to use it.
We will lovingly sort your donations and prepare them. They will be folder or placed on a hanger and prepare to head to the clothing closet.
Your larger items will be inspected and wiped down and also prepare to head to their closet and await their new sweet little one!
#3. Sorted in the closet
After your donations have been prepared, they will be taken to the closet and organized by size and gender. Our closets are made for shopping! When a foster parent or social worker arrives, they can grab a basket and shop away. We always want our closets to be an organized and welcoming environment!
Did we mention that every item that leaves Fostering Hope,
leaves FREE OF CHARGE?
There is never a charge
for foster children!
