I had a friend ask me the other day for places to donate gently used maternity and baby clothes in Orange County so I posted on my Tiny Oranges Facebook page to see if anyone had a suggestion.
Within one evening, I got 14 responses of great local OC charities. I love Facebook! I wanted to do a post listing these organizations in case you have items you no longer need and want to donate to local families who can use your help. Your donations make a difference.
Of course, I know there are MANY more, so please comment below if you want to add to this list! And, please do “like” my Facebook page as my readers have the best info to share!
