    Default Do charitable organizations include new baby clothing in Christmas hampers?

    I am wondering if places like the Salvation Army or Inn of the Good Shepherd would accept NEW baby clothing to incude in thier hampers? Does anyone know? Or, do they just take toys/books?

    I am trying to put together a box of stuff to take over......and just wondering what can go in...I don't have a ton of money to spend this year....but have a bunch of stuff that was never worn, tags still on KWIM? Last year we specifically bought for a child and we did give outfits for the child, they gave us her size etc. But I'm not sure if they include/accept baby clothes if you are just doing a general donation to their christmas drive?

    what about getting a tag off of an Angel tree. that way you know a little girl/boy will get it at the right age/size as what you are donating. we did that when you guys were small with a little blanket or teddybear.

    Life Spin does. I remember the first Christmas after my seperation but before I started getting support they helped my family out and there were new socks, bras, underwear and shoes for me and the kids each got a bunch of nice clothes each.
