We are so excited to be partnering with Cradles to Crayons at Baby Be Hip once again. Are you looking for the perfect place to donate those bins of baby clothes and toddler clothing that you no longer need and use?  Look no further. We are located in Horsham, PA and we are serving as a drop off location for Cradles to Crayons.  No need to drive to Conshohocken, we’ll do that. That’s our gift to you for your generosity to an amazing organization.

They are also in desperate need of winter coats. Yes, winter coats.  If you are like me, you probably have a few hanging in the closet that no one wears anymore. Clean out your closet and warm up another fellow Philadelphian! So, yes, we are taking more than just baby items and baby coats. Read below for all the items that they will take and not take.

If you haven’t heard about this local organization Cradles to Crayons they are located in Conshohocken, PA and they are a nonprofit organization that donates new and gently used items to low income children in the Philadelphia area. We here at Baby Be Hip love and support Cradles to Crayons mission and want to help provide essentials for children in need.

Stop by and visit us at Baby Be Hip and drop off your donations – we would love to see and meet some of our customers and new friends too! We are located at 460-A Caredean Drive in Horsham, PA in the back and we will be open for drop offs on Monday-Friday, 9-4 p.m. Our number is 215.353.0550 if you need assistance.
