Clothes & Household Goods
Mountain Home Montana gratefully accepts gently used donations that can be given to residents and their children or that can be sold through Rattle n’ Roll, our used baby clothes mobile store, to support programs.
We typically accept the following clothes and household goods:
- Gently used baby clothes and items including bathtubs, strollers, and bassinets

- Gently used clothing and accessories for young women
- Fashion maternity clothes for young women
- Children’s books and learning activities
- Plates, bowls, glasses, silverware, utensils
- Small appliances (toasters, blenders, coffee pots)
It is hard to say no to donations when many young mothers and their children are in need, but certain items cannot be accepted due to health hazards, safety regulations, or high disposal costs.
We cannot accept the following items unless we are actively seeking them for a family or unit:
- Stuffed animals
- Cribs manufactured before 2011, including drop-side cribs. (Information on crib safety)
- Car seats
- Used brest pumps
- Men’s clothing
- Large appliances (refrigerators, ovens, stoves, etc.)
- Large furniture (bed frames, couches, tables, etc.)
- Televisions and computer monitors
While Mountain Home cannot accept these items, please consider calling to see if the YWCA Secret Seconds could use them (excluding used car seats and outdated cribs which cannot be donated).
If you have a vehicle, truck, or boat that you would like to donate to benefit Mountain Home Montana, please contact CARS, Inc. online at http://careasy.org/nonprofit/mountain-home-montana or by phone at 855-500-RIDE.
