Michael House Baby Showers

We maintain a special tradition at Michael House ― we hold a Baby Shower for every one of our mothers!  Donations for our Baby Showers are wonderful to receive.

Baby items such as baby clothing, diapers, wipes, hygiene items, handmade baby items (with or without tags) are always needed and always welcome.

We are only able to accept NEW clothing and small baby items due to health regulations and storage constraints, however. We appreciate the generous heart behind used gifts but suggest the items be given to one of several local consignment stores or care closets that provide these donated items to our moms as they are needed.

We will continue to accept larger baby items such as cribs, strollers and high chairs that are less than 5 years old and meet current Health and Safety Standards. Please ensure that all items come with all parts and pieces.
