Hope Box


Hope Box started in July 2011. Hope Box is a non-profit organization that accepts new and like new baby clothing, ages preemies to 12 months and baby items, such as blankets and board books. We collect the new and gently-used baby clothing, sort them into boy/girl and ages then create a "Hope Box" (one-year wardrobe box), and distribute the boxes through social workers in hospitals, shelters, clinics and local organizations. This is a simple solution (to a growing problem) that supports disadvantaged babies while re-using thousands of onesies, baby clothing items, blankets and books that would otherwise end up in the garbage.

In 2015 we started having our annual "Blankets for Babies" blanket drive. We have collected hundreds of blankets that have been donated during the winter months to keep babies and children warm.

We are truly grateful for every piece of donated baby clothing, blanket donation and volunteered hour . 

There will be over one million babies born into poverty in the United States this year. With your help, we could reach out to every one of them with warmth, and with hope.

How will you help Hope Box help others?

How you can help

Donate Clothing: You can drop off or mail baby clothes in sizes 0-18 months. Please make sure donations are clean, stain-free and folded to make it easy for us to process your donation quickly.

Donate Blankets: Donate new blankets during our annual blanket drive in the fall/winter months (during our annual "Blankets for Babies" blanket drive (blanket donations are accepted throughout the year).  Like to sew, knit or crochet? You can sew blankets for the babies, knit or crochet hats; all is welcomed. By doing this, you would be adding that little extra love that all babies need. 

Items that Hope Box accepts?

We distribute baby clothes in sizes preemies up to 12 months. Blankets, hats, socks, bibs and board books are welcome too.

Items that Hope Box cannot accept (although grateful):

Baby clothes may be given to new mothers as they leave the hospital. Due to space, hospitals and our organization are not in a position to distribute items such as: car seats, cribs, baby bottles, maternity clothes, formula, clothing larger than 12 months, Boppy pillows, baby bedding, bumpers, mobiles, etc… We realize your heart is in the right place to donate these items, but we kindly ask that you do not donate these items.
