Wish List

In-Kind Donations

The Children’s Place is proud to partner with local independent store Brookside Toy & Science to offer an opportunity to donate items for our classrooms and therapy rooms. Items can be purchased in store or through our online wish list, where you can sort the list by a particular classroom or type of therapy that the items will be used for. 

Thank you to Brookside Toy & Science for their support of our mission!

Food Pantry and Clothing Closet

Our food pantry and clothing closet are stocked entirely thanks to generous donors like you. Could you help us keep these vital resources available to the families we serve?

Items can be ordered from our Amazon Wish List, where they will be shipped directly to us, or dropped off during standard business hours.

The Hope Fund

Give monetarily through our Hope Fund, which helps support the most basic needs of the families we serve, including helping to stock our food pantry, clothing closet and more.

Food Pantry

At the end of each week, we send home a backpack filled with food for the children in our Day Treatment program to ensure that each child has plenty of food to eat all weekend.
