The CACDC ensures children who have sustained abuse and their non-offending family members have access to the items they need through generous donations. The items we always accept are listed below.

Please note the CACDC cannot accept used items. We believe that “abused and neglected children don’t deserve abused and neglected things.” However, we partner with Charity Recycling Partners, which can pick up your used items. Call 1-888-891-4344 to schedule a curbside pickup. Tell the operator that your donation is for the Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County. CACDC will receive a monetary donation based on every donation made through Charity Recycling Partners.
