Donate a Bag
We give new or gently used backpacks, duffel bags and baby bags of all colors and sizes to children who have been displaced. Please help us collect bags or have a “collection drive” of the items we need daily to fill the bags. Make it a school, office, church or scout project.
Donate Personal Items
Bags4Kids accepts personal items for babies, children and teens. We create comfort bags for kids who really need them. Please look over our list of items we accept and donate them today.
Donate a Prom Dress
Bags4Kids accepts donated prom dresses year round. We give new or gently worn dresses to any girl who cannot afford one, because all girls love to be pretty. We accept dresses in all sizes, colors and styles.
Spiral notebooks, pencils, pens, erasers, colored pencils, markers, crayons, coloring books, pencil boxes, drawing paper and maze/puzzle books and composition books are used for journals.
