About Loved Twice

Loved Twice is a non-profit organization clothing newborns in need with quality reused baby clothing for the first year of life. They collect gently-used baby clothes, sort these precious garments into boy and girl wardrobes-in-a-box, and distribute them exclusively through social workers in hospitals, shelters, and clinics. Theirs is a simple solution that supports disadvantaged babies while reusing thousands of onesies, swaddling blankets, and babywear that would otherwise end up in landfills. When visiting Christmas in the Park this year, stop by the Santa Booth to donate to Loved Twice.
