2 Things You Can Donate To Support A Child Welfare Cause

Unfortunately, countless children go without the basic necessities in life. Perhaps the saddest thing about it is that these kids are often the victims of child abuse and/or neglect or other unfair circumstances. 

There are many things most people take for granted that could make a world of difference to these children. If you're looking for a child welfare cause to support, here are two things you can donate to help make a difference.


Many children in the child welfare system come from families who are struggling financially. They often don't have access to new or even gently used clothing. All they may have are the clothes on their backs, which may not be suitable for the weather or appropriate for school.

Clothing donations can make a big difference to child welfare organizations. They often don't have the budget to provide new clothes for every child in their care. And when you donate clothes, shoes, and outerwear, you can help a child feel more confident and comfortable. They'll have something to wear that is age- and size-appropriate.

You can donate clothes your child has outgrown or that you no longer wear. You can also support child welfare causes by shopping at thrift stores and donating the items you purchase. But first, check with the child welfare organization to see what sizes and types of clothing they need the most. Also, make sure the clothes you donate are clean and in good condition, so the child can wear them with pride.


Many children who depend on welfare may not have many belongings of their own, and the toys they do have may not be age-appropriate.

So when you donate toys, you can help bring some joy into a child's life. Toys can make a child feel comforted and loved, especially when they're going through a tough time. Common toys you can donate may include board games, coloring books, building blocks, dolls, and stuffed animals.

Again, it's best to check with the child welfare organization beforehand to see what types of toys they need. You can also donate new or gently used items. But make sure all the pieces are accounted for and that the toy is in good condition before you donate it.

Most child welfare organizations are always in need of baby and toddler toys as well. These include items, such as rattles, teethers, sippy cups, and small toys that can be attached to a child's car seat or stroller.

These are just a few examples of things you can donate to support child welfare causes. Every little bit helps, and your donations can make a big difference in the lives of children who need it the most.
