Donate Items

Should you or your organization be interested in donating in-kind items we welcome your partnership. Here is a partial listing of the in-kind donations that are needed throughout the year:

Birthday Parties and Special Occasions: Oftentimes our youth have not had the opportunity to celebrate a birthday or special event celebration. With your help we can give the gift of acknowledging a young person’s life and the accomplishments they have achieved thus far. If you are interested in sponsoring birthday cakes or party decorations please know we welcome these types of donations.

Baby Showers: We are always in need of baby gifts to help expecting teen mothers in their new role as parent. Diaper bags filled with diapers, baby clothes, baby hygiene products, and bottles are always welcomed.

Welcome Basket Project: Welcome baskets are given to all of our youth while in our care. These welcome baskets, filled with hygiene products and other personal necessities, show our youth that we are here to help.

Recreation Needs Project: When the youth need some downtime we encourage them to read, play sports, watch films, or participate in arts and crafts workshops. We are always in need and welcome donations of books, sports equipment, age-appropriate DVDs, crafting and art supplies.

Hope Chest Program: Many of our clients in the Family Preservation Program, Outpatient Mental Health Program, and in our Transitional Age Youth Program oftentimes face life on their own without help from friends or family. The Hope Chest Program is an opportunity for you to help our clients start a new chapter in their life by helping them obtain basic living necessities such as cleaning supplies, utensils, bathroom and bedroom items, or laundry products.

*We kindly request that all in-kind donations be new and unused.

*We are unable to provide a pickup service for your donations. Please call our office to find out where and when your donation can be received, and how you can obtain your donation receipt if one is needed.

I really enjoy working with and helping Crittenton. They are a wonderful group who works hard to support children and families who come from very challenging backgrounds. It is always a joy to see the positive impact they have in so many lives.
