Gifts of Goods

How can I donate to the program?

If you would like to donate items to Covenant to Care for Children's Critical Goods Delivery Program, please call:
(860) 243-1806
Monday - Friday between 8:30 AM - 4 PM

If you plan to bring donations for children to our office, you can make an appointment with the staff over the phone. If you would like to have your donation picked up, you will be connected with our Critical Goods Coordinator to schedule a pick-up. See our "Seasonal Planner" list for donation ideas.

Furniture should be in presentable condition (not stained, ripped, broken, or covered with animal fur).

There is typically a two-week wait from the date of your call until the pick up occurs. Be sure you can hold items for that period if needed.

We request that anyone who donates furniture make a $20.00 donation to Covenant to Care for Children to help defray the cost of running this program. The donation can be included in your income tax receipt.

Seasonal Planner

  • Fall: August - November

    • Requests from Social Workers typically increase as teachers report children who are in need of clothing.
    • Begin to plan winter holiday projects by discussing them with your FBO community and your Social Worker or Program Coordinator. Understand, communicate and confirm the expectations of all parties regarding quantities and deadlines.
    • School supplies are needed prior to the start of school but are always welcome.
    • Winter Coat drives can begin at the first sign of chill.
  • Winter: December - March

    • Remember to report holiday activity on your monthly report while it is fresh in your mind!
    • Share thank-you notes and stories with your FBO and your Program Coordinator.
    • Mittens, hats and socks are welcome throughout the cold months.
    • Alert your FBO and your Social Worker if you will be providing Camperships. Many camps accept registrations in March.
    • Plan Spring projects during this period. If you are putting together Easter, Purim or Passover Baskets, check the date of the holiday (which changes each year) to complete them on time.
  • Spring: April - May

    • Requests for summer clothing will increase as the weather warms up.
    • Start to plan and communicate Back-to-School Projects since most FBOs experience a decrease in attendance during the summer. Your Social Worker will need the packs by mid-summer to deliver them before school begins in late August.
    • Summer toy and sports equipment drives
    • Stuffed animal collections
  • Summer: June - July

    • Complete monthly reporting before CCC’s fiscal year ends on June 30.
    • Let your Social Worker and Program Coordinator know if you will be away for an extended period. Let them know who will be filling in for you.
    • Plan to complete Back-to-School-Packs projects by mid- August.
