So, you’re wondering, “Where to donate stuffed animals?” It’s a good question and one that many people ask, but often don’t get the specific answer they want. When looking for a place to donate your old dolls, stuffed animals or other stuffed toy, it’s helpful to know which option is best for you. Here’s a look at some of the options:
Drop off – Donate your gently used stuffed or baby items at a local donation center. You’ll find many places that will accept these household items, as they are so popular right now. If interested in donating, simply drop off your gently used stuffed animals, baby items, or other stuffed toy to one of these places. Depending on how large the donation is, they will either pick them up from your home, or have a van come to pick them up and haul them away if there is too much of a load.
Thrift Store – Some people prefer to donate toys this way, as they feel more comfortable buying them at a thrift store. However, for those who are uncomfortable with purchasing at a thrift store, some areas have several around that accept gently used toys. In Lake County, there is a Thrift Store located at the Village at Silverton at Main Street in West Seattle. All items that are in the shop, over a certain age, will be sold at a huge discount. This is one way to get rid of an older toy that is no longer being used or that you no longer need. However, as with any type of donating, it is important to make sure that the toy is going to a reputable organization, such as a charity or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Donate Online – Donating online is becoming increasingly popular. In fact, there are many websites that will allow you to list and sell items that you no longer want and get paid in cash. Before you get involved with one of these websites, you should take a look at what charities they are associated with and whether or not they will accept the toys that you donate. For example, some charities only accept toys that are non-toxic and safe for the animal to eat. Others will accept any toy that fits into their definition of a great toy, including stuffed animals.
Charitable Locations – There are many charitable locations in King County that you can donate unwanted items to. Some of them do not accept donations of all types of items but may accept donations of food, flowers, and candles. If you live in Maple Valley, there is a local Lions Club that you can donate your unwanted items to. If you live in South Lake Park, there is a local animal shelter that needs donations of both new and old pets. If you live in Renton, there is a local shelter that you can donate to call the Humane Society. Both of these places accept donations of all types of items.
Childcare Centers – There are also daycare centers in King County that will accept donations of stuffed animals. The daycare centers usually have a donation box on the premises where you can drop off the doll and it will be given to the Child Care charity. Donations can also be made at the front door of the daycare centers. You can call the charities to find out more information. It is a good idea to visit the daycare centers to see how the children look at the dolls before you make a decision to donate.
