How to Help

Donate Money

Your contribution will help Little Hands support babies and moms in need with necessities like diapers, clothes, essentials and more. Donate here!

Donate Items

We accept donations of new and “gently used” items for babies from newborn to 3 years of age. A detailed list of the items we accept and need is available here. Donations are hand-sorted, bundled, and delivered right to parents and babies in critical need.

Host a Collection Drive

Leverage your network to help those in need. Host a drive at your workplace, school, home, organization, place of worship, etc. This is an excellent way to get involved on the ground. For more information about how to host a donation drive and items we most critically need at the time, or to request a donation bin for your drive, contact us!

Volunteer

We regularly need help collecting and sorting donations as well as delivering items to our network partners and families. Volunteer hours can be regularly scheduled or done on an as-needed or as-available basis. Sign up to volunteer with Little Hands here!

Items We Accept

,Below is a detailed list of items we accept. While some items must be new,  most can be “gently used.” Gently used items must be clean, in good shape, and have plenty of life left for another child. An item with a * means it must be new. Bolded items are high-need items.

Please note: We accept clothing size newborn to 4T. Clothes must be clean and free of holes, rips, and stains. Clothes can not have a team, business logo, holiday, or reference to a family member (mom, dad, sister, brother, etc.).

Items can also be sent to us directly through our Amazon Wish List.
