Host a
Donation Drive

Donation drives led by individuals, corporate and community groups, and youth organizations, can help DePelchin provide children and families with the items they need most. From essentials like clothes, diapers, and school supplies to gifts for birthdays and holidays, the items collected relieve financial strain on our families and put smiles on the faces of our kids.

Option 1:
Collect and Deliver our
Most Needed Items

Gift Cards
Clothes & Shoes
Diapers & Wipes
Board Games & Puzzles
Arts & Crafts Supplies
Sensory Toys & Weighted Blankets
Bikes and Sporting Equipment

Please Note: DePelchin only accepts donations of new items.

Option 2:
Build Baskets for Families

Another option for supporters hosting a donation drive is to collect items within a theme, and assemble them into a basket(s) that will go directly to our families. These baskets help families feel celebrated and supported, and can be used to mark special occasions. A few examples include baskets for birthdays, family fun nights, holiday-themed baskets for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, and more.
