Reasons to Give When Gift-Getting Ends

By December 20, 2016 No Comments

When the dust settles, there’s sure to be wrapping paper, bows and tape on the floor. These remnants of holiday gift-giving can leave all of us in a bit of a lurch as we try to find space for new items, from clothing to toys, and even furniture!

This year, consider a donation to Any Baby Can. Donating your old items will make room for the new, and help families in our community. Here are just a few reasons you may want to donate:

1) Eliminate clutter. Although you love the new items that you received, there may not be enough room to house the new and the old. Items in good condition, including clothing, books, baby furniture, and household items are always in need for the families we serve. You can see a list of items we’re always willing to accept here or call 512.454.3743.

Additionally, we’re accepting donations for our Season for Caring family. You can learn more about their needs and see their wish list here.

2) Set a great example. Especially if you have children, donating your old items will not only help make room for the new things you received; it will teach the joy of giving to others, particularly those in need. Help your children decide which toys or clothing they don’t want to use anymore, and set those aside for donations for children who will enjoy them as though they were new.

3) There’s still time for tax deductions! A perk of giving by December 31 is that you can deduct the amount from your tax return. This is true for in-kind gifts and monetary donations. If you would like to make a financial gift to Any Baby Can, please visit our donation page, and if you’d like to schedule drop-off for an in-kind donation, please call us at 512.454.3743.

At Any Baby Can, we help parents raise healthy and happy children. Thank you for considering a donation to Any Baby Can. We wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season!
