childishthingsA Different Type Of Drive
You can’t turn around in the holiday season without seeing a bin for toy donation for children in need. Toys are great but many basics for Seattle’s children in need are still being left unmet. This season Childish Things is partnering with Westside Baby to collect donations of diapers, one of the basic and more expensive needs for children. Drop off those outgrown disposable diapers or pull-ups at our store during the month of December. Childish Things will match the donations collected in December with additional new diapers. Shop and give locally this holiday season!
