WAREHOUSE

Our Warehouse was built with you in mind! You’ll find all donated items for your children to have free of charge. Some are new and some are worn-in just right.

 

INVENTORY

Due to our inventory being donation based, we do our best to keep all supplies on hand. With over 900 families, we like to make sure that a family’s needs are met first, with items they may want second.

  • Diapers & wipes
  • Bed sets
  • Crib sets
  • Clothing (pants, shirts, socks, underwear, etc.)
  • Hats, belts, scarves
  • Bathing tubs
  • Toys
  • Plates/bowls/cups/bottles
  • Car seats
  • High chairs

 

SHOPPING GUIDELINES

All items are based on current donations and availability. 

Items that are ONE per child per month:

  • Diapers
  • Underwear
  • 1 new pair of shoes (2 used pairs)
  • 2 new socks (3 used)
  • New toy (reasonable number of used toys)

Items that are ONE per child per (school) year:

  • Homemade quilts
  • Blankets (exception: 2 baby blankets)
  • Sheet sets (exception: 2 crib sheets)
  • Backpack
  • New clothing items
  • New high chair or umbrella stroller

Items that are per family per year:

  • Dish sets

The guidelines are set to ensure that these items go to the families that provide a safe haven for children that have been displaced due to no fault of their own. We need your cooperation in order to continue providing support to you and your family.

 

FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE

The marketplace is a closed group where foster and adoptive families can swap and share items at no charge. Post what your family needs or post what item you have to give. The idea is that you will be helping each other. More Than A Bed will do the same – we will market what we have available. If you wish to join the group, please send a request through the group via Facebook.
