Donation options are endless at The Pregnancy & Parenting Center. The question is: What do you have to give? From stocks and bonds to electronics, vehicles and other assets – all gifts are welcome. In addition, learn if your employer offers matching grant opportunities.
For more information on how to give in these ways, please contact our Director of Donor Development, Chad Salle, at (330) 904-6694.
Celebrate the choice for life! Donate new and like-new baby items to the center’s boutique where moms and dads can “shop” for the items they need following their parenting education courses. We also encourage groups to host “Baby Showers” where the items donated go directly to clients in need. Formula is very costly–consider helping a client provide nutrition for her infant by purchasing Gerber, Enfamil, Similac formula. We keep it on our shelves for times of emergency.
Most Needed Items
- Diapers (larger sizes: 3, 4, 5 or 6)
- Formula (Gerber is most requested brand)
- New and gently used baby clothes up to size 2T
- Furnishings such as crib, carseat, stroller, high chair
- Baby toiletries such as wash, shampoo, lotion
- Bottles and pacifiers
- Small toys (like rattles or teething rings)

Thank you for thinking of us when you have maternity clothes, baby clothes, and baby furnishings you no longer need or use.
We strive to provide every service we offer with excellence. Therefore, we are compelled to present our clients with only those items that are clean and in excellent condition. We believe this honors our clients as well as the One we serve.
In addition, we are legally obligated to only disperse items that meet federal safety guidelines. It becomes an expense for us to dispose of items that may not be usable. As you consider us as the recipient of your donated goods, please keep in mind the helpful hints in this brochure.

It’s fun and easy to host a baby shower for The Pregnancy & Parenting Center. “Danielle” even turned her 12th birthday into a shower! Pick a date, invite your friends, whip up a few treats—and let’s party! Guests bring baby items that we, in turn, make available to our clients as they earn rewards through parenting classes. Most importantly, you’ll be blessing young parents who have chosen life for their precious little ones.
Please contact us to find out more about Hosting a Shower and be a part of saving lives in our community.
