    Is there a place to donate baby clothes and supplies (blankets, toys, diapers, formula, etc.) to families in need? Some things are new, some gently used. It needs to be in Center City or a reasonable biking distance, and open on weekends.* I know there's another thread about a church at 22nd & Reed but it fails the "reasonable biking distance" test. Thanks!


    * Srsly, it is bizarre how many charities aren't open for donations on the weekend. That basically cuts off the majority of people from volunteering or donating!

    Yes, the 22nd and Reed was my thread. I host a baby shower for a women and children's shelter every year as a big celebration but collect all year round. There is a lso a Catholic Women and Children's shelter on 13th street between Spruce and Pine (same side as the Episcopal Church)
