New & Used Donations

Due to an overwhelming response by our caring community, Villa Rosa will not be accepting donations of gently used clothing or household items until further notice. We are filled to the rafters and do not have room for anything else. We appreciate your generosity and understanding.

Villa Rosa is fortunate to be surrounded by a supportive Winnipeg community that donates a variety of necessary items that we pass on free of charge to our moms and babies. We do not have the capability to pick up donations, but are happy to receive them between 8:30 and 4:30 weekdays. Unfortunately we can no longer accept donations evenings and weekends unless you call ahead so we can be prepared. We often receive so many after hours donations that our entranceway is blocked and it can be a fire hazard! We appreciate all that is donated but are trying to manage the donations in the safest way possible. We always can use items such as:

  • Diapers and baby wipes

  • Baby clothes

  • Bibs, receiving blankets, quilts

  • Personal items for Moms such as body lotion, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, makeup,
    body wash, soap

  • Casual maternity clothes

  • Nursing bras

  • Nursing pads

  • ​Baby slings

  • Maxi pads

  • Strollers, cribs (purchased After 1989)

  • Hangers

  • Blank calendars for current or next year

  • Clock radios

  • Fans, heaters

We also, on occasion, gladly accept gently used furniture to pass on to our moms moving out into the community. However, as we do not have a large amount of storage space, please call ahead to (204) 786-5741 ext 226 to make arrangements. We often try to have furniture delivered right to the young woman's new apartment on moving day, so that storage is not an issue.
