Donate Items to Children in Need: Help Fill these Sweet Cases!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here


I wanted to share with you all a fundraising organization going on in my local county. A local, Meghan, is working with Together We Rise to raise money so they can provide Glove House Inc & Seneca County Children’s Division “sweet cases” to give to children coming into care. These duffel bags will be decorated with fun designs and encouragement, filled with pillow pet/stuffed animal, coloring books/crayons, blanket, and hygiene kit that will belong to them and go with them throughout their journey.

They are accepting cash donations as well as product donations.

I thought it would be helpful because there are many of you that follow me that live in Seneca County and I’m sure would love to help if you can. I have comprised a detailed list of items that can be donated. Items will be separated into different age groups before being distributed. If you have any questions, please feel free to email or message me.

You can drop off your donations to:
Waterloo Mini Mall
21 East Main Street, Second Floor, Suite 207
Waterloo, NY

We recently shared a deal on Pillow Pets for Only $2.00! I know some Dollar Trees were selling the small ones as well. I think this would make a great addition! We have many deals each week on these items listed in our coupon matchups. I know BJ’s had 4 pks of kids Shampoo for only $2.98 (you can use coupons on these!) – I many check and see if mine has any left. Please let us know if you have any ideas on other useful items we could add to the list, as I’m sure anything is welcome! Thank you so much!

Because a child’s belongings are never trash!
