Crib Donation

At BabyGoRound, it is our responsibility to ensure the well-being of the families we support and to inspect all items given for use. We take great care in assessing all gear that is collected within the community so that all items are clean, stain-free, in good working condition and have all parts included. Before you donate a crib, please review and complete this checklist as part of our safety protocol. We require a printed manual and all parts for the crib donation.

Do you pick up items for donation?

BabyGoRound requests that items are dropped directly at the facility on designated donation days or donated through a Community Champion. We do not offer pick-ups at this time.

Do you accept baby clothes?

We accept sleepers for babies 0-24 months and seasonal outerwear in good condition. We do not accept other baby clothing at this time.

Do you take used car seats – even if they are still current?

We cannot take any car seats due to liability reasons, nor are we aware of any organization that is collecting them, even if they are still valid. Car seats may be recycled if they are out of date, and your local recycling depot should have more information on how to do that. We happily accept new, in box car seat donations.
