The lists below (and downloadable above) show all the basics that make up a Butterfly Box. In addition to these items, it's wonderful if we can include something small and handmade and a brief note of welcome. For ideas on ways to use your (or your child's) creativity to get involved, check out the Get Crafty page.
***At this time, we are accepting only new and/or newly crafted items for Butterfly Boxes. Thank you for understanding.***
We are always in need of any of the items listed below. Click the buttons above to be taken to our Amazon wish lists from which you can order many of these items and have them shipped straight to us. Or, if you are local to the Portland, OR area, and wish to make a donation in person, please use the "Contact Us" link to arrange a pick up/drop off.
DONATE A FULL BOX
**At this time, we can only accept complete boxes from those local to the Portland or McMinnville, OR areas. However, sometimes we travel. If you are in another part of Oregon and would like to donate a box, please use the "Contact Us" link to ask if we'll be in your area soon.**
If your wish is to donate a complete Butterfly Box, please include every item listed below to ensure each person receives what they need. Baby boxes should be packed in a diaper bag, kid and teen boxes in a backpack, and adult boxes in a 6 qt reusable box or bin, or a reusable shopping bag. Feel free to also include something small and handmade, as well as a brief note of welcome (a great way to involve your kids!).
When your box is complete, note if it is for a male or female, and use the "Contact Us" link to arrange a pick up/drop off.
