    Post and share, donate or request used child clothing at our family friendly message board below to get started today

    Parent Resources,
    The concept after all is that all the gently used child clothing is FREE and the family requesting to box of clothing pay for S & H fees to the donator. We all know the prices of child clothing is sky high at secondhand stores and at the malls.

    How to pack up a box of donated child clothing

    Before you pack anything up make sure the person receiving the box has agreed to pre-pay the S&H fees to you. (It is up to you & them if you want to pay extra for insuring the box)

    P.O Box numbers will not work at all. Do not use a P.O box number. Ask your neighbor or family member if you can have the box shipped to their home address.

    I firmly advise: Do not use a notice that a signature must be signed at time of delivery because most people are at work and can not sign for the delivery. The box will be returned to the sender and cost the sender or both of you fruitless fees.

    Please Work it out between each of you! It can be quicker than you think to help a child with nice clothes

    • Use a Corrugated Box (the UPS offers a set affordable price for one size box so pack it tight)
    • Whenever possible, use a new box.
    • Close and tape the Box Securely with clear shipping tape
    • Label your box correctly
    • You must make every effort must be made to obtain a street address.
    • Always include the recipient's postal code with the complete street address.
    • Always include your complete return address, including full street address and postal code.
    • Remove or cross out old labels or markings on a used box. This will avoid confusion on the direction for your shipment.
    • You might want to include form of identification inside your package
