Does anyone know of any companies that would be willing to donate baby/toddler supplies (clothes/shoes/blankets/toys) to an orphanage in Romania? I will be traveling to an orphanage this summer for 2 months to work with 200 babies/toddlers and am looking for some help with gathering supplies. I am going through Greater Europe Mission here in Monument,Colorado.
Put out the word at your church and I'll bet people will donate. So many baby gifts are given to babies and they grow so quickly that most clothing shows little if any wear. Many people who are done having babies don't know what to do with their children's outgrown clothes. I'll bet many would donate them to you to take with you.
Check out http://www.freecycle.org Everything is free and you can post a "wanted" notice and also check out "offered" items in your community.
You might contact Gerber about donating baby food. Also Procter & Gamble on donating Pampers diapers (their toll free numbers are on all their products). Best of Luck on your mission!!
