Suggestions for clothing and baby item donation

Can't Post | Private Reply
I hope this is ok to post here, Im not selling anything so didnt think to put it in the business/trade forum.


If you personally know anyone in need or an organzation that does great things in need of the following items , could you post or PM me? Sad in a city so huge with so many people in need that I even need to ask, but I was told by my husband and inlaws that pulling over and offering a family on the side of the road a giant sack of gently used clothes would be an insult. :/ there is a place nearby that works with children I have in mind for the toys, but we have lots so I dont mind spreading the love around.

Baby/Childrens Items:
Clothes , mostly girl and only up to 2T. All seasons.
Toys infant to toddler type
Board books, lots, mainly English
Baby bouncers (chair type and standing type)
*Cloth diapers (would prefer to give to an individual who will for sure use them, I made them and at one point sold diapers in the States, it was a labor of love for each diaper!)

Adult Clothing:
Womens maternity (size medium and large)
Womens size 14-16 (used as maternity, but some nice name brand sweaters and things that shouldnt be thrown due to such little use)
1 mens black suit (? Somehow a suit of my brothers ended up in my things, LOL tall and thin frame. Can send specific sizing if anyone is interested. JC penny)
Mens tees, large-extra large. (Only donating what is in good condition/hardly used.)

Kitchen:
Varies kitchen supplies that dont fit in our small space :)

I hope that wasnt weird listing all that out here, but honestly if you know someone expecting, a young family wanting english board books, or a guy who could use a nice black suit (young college kid?) please let me know and we can figure out how to get these items to new homes. We are far north in the city, on the border to Tlalne.

Are you on Facebook? There is a FB group called 'Foreigners in the DF' where a man posts frequently about taking donations of the kind you have to extremely poor people out in the boonies. Here's his FB info:

Another suggestion is to ask at the office of a (large) church near you whether they accept donations and distribute them. I am told that the parroquia of our delegación does this.

Were you able to contact the man I mentioned? This morning on Foreigners in the DF he is asking once again for donations. I don't know him personally, but it appears that he is genuine.
