Gently Used Clothing, Athletic Shoes, Boots, Stuffed Animals and Children’s Books

All clients receive NEW clothing, but when we have gently used clothing in the child’s size we give additional clothing and shoes to help. We gladly accept gently used children’s clothing (preemie to child-appropriate adult XXXL), athletic shoes, boots, stuffed animals and children’s books. (We cannot accept toys.)

As of September 2021 our Used Clothing Department is desperate for sizes 18 months to size 20 – girls AND boys. In particular, from sizes 8 to 20, we need pants, short and long sleeve shirts, sweatshirts, sweaters, and pajamas. We are also desperate for gently used athletic shoes and boots, particularly small child sizes.

All donations can be dropped off at our loading dock at the back of our Clothing Center (2366 Miracle Lane, Mishawaka, IN 46545) on any of our open days/times. If the loading dock is closed, please ring the doorbell at the back entrance door to the left of the loading dock.

Please DO NOT leave the donation outside the loading dock and leave.

Items must be received by a Christ Child member.

Donations will be accepted on any of our open days/times. Please click HERE to see a calendar of our open days/times.


Help make a difference in the lives of local children. 100% of the money you donate to the Annual Appeal will be used to purchase new clothing for under resourced children and infants.  Please consider providing clothing and/or shoes for one child or multiple children.
