May 2017 Update: As a reminder, we can’t accept used toys or car seats. Also, due to the overwhelming generosity of donors, please no clothes donations until June.

Goodwill option: Do you have gently used clothing or items not listed (e.g. household goods, furniture, and gently used toys)? You can also make a donation to any Kansas City Metro Goodwill to help provide vouchers to Rose Brooks Center. Please visit for more information. Thank you for your support.

* We ask that all urgent need items be in new condition.
