The Wish List at Isabel’s House is expansive and always changing! If you or your organization has an idea for a drive or collection campaign, please contact Kory Wilcox, Community Liaison: Click here.

We generally accept…

New (preferred) and gently used children’s clothing (infant through pre-teen), accessories, bedding, hygiene products, school supplies, developmentally-focused toys & games, kids’ books, craft projects, pajamas, coats, underwear, and shoes, as well as unopened snacks, drinks, formula, and cooking supplies.

If our team determines that an item you donated cannot be used well at Isabel’s House, we partner with other local organizations like Springfield Victory Mission to ensure that all gifts are able to make a tangible difference for families living in our community.

For almost all items, our “golden rule” is: if it’s not special enough for your children, it’s probably not special enough for our children!

We generally do NOT accept…

  • ITEMS FOR ADULTS & OLDER TEENS: Consider contacting Harmony House or Rare Breed.
  • LARGE APPLIANCES OR FURNITURE: Consider contacting The Kitchen or Habitat for Humanity.
  • NURSERY DECOR & STUFFED TOYS: Consider contacting LifeHouse or Sammy’s Window.
  • WORN OUT CLOTHING/ITEMS (torn, faded, stained or tattered): Please direct these to organizations such as Goodwill where they can be sorted well and then properly recycled, if needed.
  • CAR SEATS: Due to liability concerns, many charities (including Isabel’s House) cannot take used car seats or booster seats. If your seats are not expired, we recommend simply passing them on to friends & family.
