Urgent need: Denver nonprofit is collecting gently used baby gear

posted by:

Do you have baby gear you are no longer using?
 
 Local nonprofit, WeeCycle, which collects and provides Colorado families in need with gently used baby gear, formula and diapers, is asking for the community’s help in “gearing up” following a significant increase in demand for its services. On average over the last three months, WeeCycle has seen a 161% increase in the need for cribs, bassinets, pack-and-plays and toddler beds, and a 283% increase in requests for car seats since last year.
 
To meet the increased demand for these items and others, WeeCycle is asking the community for donations of gently used baby gear and new diapers and formula. Items can be dropped off at any of WeeCycle’s donation locations between Nov. 12-20. Please no toys or baby clothing, as WeeCycle has plenty of these items already.

Highest need items: 
• Cribs/Toddler Beds
• Humidifiers
• Thermometers
• Bassinets
• Strollers
• Baby Monitors
• Winter clothing and coats in sizes 2T, 3T and 4T
• Enfamil Yellow and Purple Baby Formula
• Winter shoes sizes 7 and up
• Car Seats — infant, convertible, and booster. You MUST complete this form to donate a car seat. If you do not include this form, the car seat can’t be used and will be recycled.  
*Please note — WeeCycle is not accepting smaller clothing or shoes and toys at these collection events due to limited space and capacity.

WeeCycle typically accepts baby gear donations during specific collection hours at its warehouse but is opening additional opportunities for the public to donate at numerous locations across the metro area and suburbs from Nov. 12-20. Following is a list of participating donation locations and collection events:

Donations can also be dropped off at WeeCycle’s warehouse during collection hours, which are Tuesdays from 9-11 a.m. and Thursdays from 12-2 p.m. WeeCycle will also be having a collection event at the warehouse on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. The warehouse is located at 20 S. Havana St., Suite 210, Aurora, CO 80012.
WeeCycle is proud to walk alongside caregivers, case workers and families to restore dignity for those struggling to provide for their families by connecting them to essential supplies such as formula, a safe place for their baby to sleep, a stroller so they can access public transportation and so much more.

After Nov. 20, all baby gear donations will need to be brought to the WeeCycle warehouse during regular collection hours. Please be sure to check the website for holiday scheduling.

WeeCycle also has numerous volunteer shifts available for community members that would like to help process and/or distribute donations. Sign up at weecycle.org/volunteer.
