Agency Needs List

As our staff visit regulated providers, we encounter many who need basic items to enable them to provide safe and adequate child care. The following is a list of items to consider if you wish to make an inkind donation to 4-C.

  • Children’s books for children age seven and under - English, Spanish and Hmong

  • Finger paints, watercolors or other art supplies for children

  • Refrigerator thermometers

  • Outlet plugs (plastic plugs to cover unused electrical outlets)

  • Carbon monoxide detectors

  • 8 1/2 x 11 white copy paper

  • Art paper

  • Gift certificates for restaurants or retail stores for provider recognition 

Donors are recognized by printing their names in our quarterly newsletter, in our thank you note, and other ways as appropriate. Requests to remain anonymous are always respected. We ask that all items be new or gently used to insure the safety of the children.
