The WestSide Baby Spring Clean


“We have a set of grandparents who were caring for their young granddaughter as the mother’s addiction issues left them no choice. Their grandchild was extremely bright, outgoing and adventurous, but she needed clothing. WestSide Baby helped her get outfitted so she could go to the first day of her new school feeling confident. Her grandparents could not be more thankful.”

We Need Your Help:

We strive to make sure that all of the families who need items for their little ones are helped, but sometimes, heart-breakingly, we don’t have enough items for every child.

Right now we are running low on children’s clothing. In 2016, we were unable to fill orders leaving:

  • 146 children without boots
  • 123 children needing winter coats
  • 858 children soaked without rain jackets

Did you know?

  • From birth to age 6 months, a baby may grow 1/2 to 1 inch a month.
  • On average a school age child will  grow about 2.5 inches per year.
  • Between 0-12 months infants can go through four shoe sizes.
  • On average, children aged 6-10’s feet grow a size per year.

Which is Why We Need YOU To Join The Spring Clean Virtual Drive Today!

We need you, your friends and families to donate our most needed items. Simply put, we want to encourage you and all your friends to have a spring clean. Purge that pile of baby clothes, grab any lightly used older kids clothing (up to size 12) that are falling into misuse and bring your items to either of our White Center or Central District locations, or any of our drop sites in Seattle, so we can redistribute them to kids in need.

Our most needed items are:

  • Size 12 Clothes—especially pants and long-sleeve shirts
  • Winter Coats (Size 5T and up, especially Boy)
  • Rain jackets
  • 3T and 4T Pants
  • 4T Pants-Boy
  • Size 8 PJs-Boy and Girl
  • 0-3mo Pants
  • 0-3mo  Sweaters
  • 9mo Sweaters
