Donate Goods

Helping a family meet an immediate or seasonal need with a small, simple donation brings stability to that family, easing the burden of homelessness and allowing them to focus on more important long-term goals. Looking to donate today? Here are our most current needs (donations should be in-season, new or in very gently-used condition, and free of holes or stains):


Ongoing Needs

What We Do Not Need

To keep up with our needs in real time, watch our Facebook and Twitter pages for immediate needs.

If you have clothing items to donate, please consider donating them at a MetroAid Bin near you! We are honored to have been selected as a benefactor of MetroAid, who gives a portion of funds raised though sourcing and selling donated clothing to Playtime Project!

Due to ongoing space constraints at our program sites and office however, we cannot accept gently used, in-kind donations at this time without prior approval. If you have goods you hope to donate, please email in advance of delivery. 

Please also consider making a monetary donation to the Playtime Project. General donations allow us the flexibility to meet the changing needs of families on a daily basis.
