Non-Monetary Donations

Giving to us doesn’t require you to write a check. Many of our needs are material, and we welcome your in-kind donations. Thanks to your kind generosity, over the years we have been able to provide food and other necessities to children and families in need throughout the Tampa Bay community. We could not have accomplished this task without your donation of in-kind items, and we remain grateful for your contributions. 

Please know we have a great need, and welcome clothing, toys and shoes. 

This month’s URGENT needs include:

  • Sun Screen

  • Flip flops/sandals

  • Sun glasses

  • Beach towels

  • Gift cards for stores that sell swim suits for children ages toddler to 17 years old

  • New and un-used swim suits: 1 piece swim suits for girls and swim trunks for boys

  • Deodorant

  • Pillows

  • Twin bedding (sheets, comforters, or bedding sets)

Creative Ways to Give

Host a Donation Drive

An easy way for you or your company, social club, or faith group to get involved is to host a donation drive. It’s also a rewarding way to gather friends, families, and co-workers to make a difference in the life of a child or family.

Contact us to learn more about hosting a donation drive.

Events based Giving

We accept various items for our auctions including travel packages, amusement park tickets, spa packages, hotel stays, boating trips, golf packages, airline gift certificates, home decorations, cleaning service gift certificates, fitness packages, sports packages, theater and concert tickets, cooking class passes, restaurant gift certificates, jewelry, photography, sculpture and other types of art. Auction items are used to raise funds to benefit the Children’s Home Network.

Gift Cards and Summer/Annual Passes

Gift cards help to offset costs for our children in Kid's Village and Adolescents in Motherhood programs as well as kinship and foster children in the community. Summer and annual passes to local attractions to places like aquariums, zoos or parks also give our children memorable experiences. Please help us provide family outings, clothing, supplies, or a memorable dinner for special occasions.
