Aimee's In-Kind Donation Do's and Don'ts
Updated: 6 days ago
Is your baby now a toddler, and you're finding yourself with clothes and supplies around the house that you no longer use? Or do you have parent friends who are in this situation?
If you answered "yes" to one of these questions, then you may think that donating these items to SisterWeb is a great way to give them a second life. To do so, please fill out this in-kind donation form. As we have limited capacity, please ONLY fill out this form when you have cleaned the items and they are ready to be donated.
Before filling out the form or contacting me (Aimee Mancha, the Community Resource Coordinator at SisterWeb), I'd like you to review this list of Do's and Don'ts as a courtesy to our staff and families.
Make sure that items are clean, free of stains and tears, AND gently-used.
Select up to 10 of your finest maternity & baby items.
Sort & label whenever possible.
Repurpose or recycle stained and torn items (See: NON-SISTERWEB DONATION AND RECYCLING RESOURCES).
Include items that you or your baby wouldn't wear.
Throw garments in trash or on the street.
Drop mystery bags at SisterWeb premises and run. Always check in with SisterWeb staff.
NON-SISTERWEB DONATION AND RECYCLING RESOURCES
Take advantage of in-store garment collecting programs (H&M, The North Face, Parade Underwear, etc.).
Recology in San Fracisco will take all textiles, even if torn or ripped, as long as they are dry. Residents can request “Textile Only” collections at no additional charge. Recology donates textiles collected through the RecycleMyJunk program to St. Vincent de Paul, which sorts and repurposes the materials
Donate to Community Thrift SF, St. Anthony's, Out of the Closet, the Salvation Army, Goodwill, Glide, Scraps, or Homeless Prenatal Program.
All donations are subject to the discretion of our onsite staff. Even if you received approval for a donation via email, our onsite intake staff has the right to reject the donation (e.g unusable condition, messiness, etc). For specific questions about in-kind donations, please contact Aimee Mancha at (415)926-9893 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
