Donors may receive a receipt for tax purposes. Donors declare the value of the goods that they have donated.

Annual Coat Drive

Each year, Welcome Baby hosts a coat drive, collecting new and gently used children’s coats, hats, gloves and scarves (ages newborn to 8 years). If you would like to hold a drive or offer a central drop-off spot, please contact us.

Alternative Holiday Markets

If your faith community hosts an alternative market and is interested in inviting Welcome Baby, please contact Cindy Riley, Parent Educator, at 919-560-7319.

Yarn Drive 

In collaboration with the Durham County Cooperative Extension and the Butner Correctional Facility, we have become a collection site for yarn.


Any length, weight and color are appreciated. Once delivered to the facility, inmates knit beautiful blankets and hats for families.
