Thank you for supporting KID with donated items! KID collects items year round and uses them to support our children and families to ensure their success. Below is information on items we currently need, when, and where we collect donated items.

KID is always in need of generously donated items for families. Since most of the children we serve have never owned new items, KID prefers the donation of new toys, clothing, home goods, and more.For the health and safety of our families we no longer accept donations of stuffed animals, used luggage, or other items not easily cleaned or disinfected.

Our KID Annual Needs are fluid and may change as our organizational needs change. Check back periodically for season-specific needs such as Back-to-School, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
