I also had them listed on craigslist. The day I donated them to the womens shelter, I went to my parents house to use their computer to remove the add and I had an email from someone who was willing to pay $60 to get them there were 2 big plastic cans of the regular, and one regular size can of the special stuff for babies with gas. I was a little supprised the shelter took them. The low income ministry, salvation army, or any of the food banks wouldn't take them.


Quoting KenzieQsMommy:

Man I bf exclusively and NO shelter would take the cans of formula I was always given =/ I hated that. They were unopened but they called them a liability along with all of the clothes and toys I wanted to donate.


Quoting cookinmommyof1:

I just box/bag everything up and fill the car. Then drop everything off at goodwill or the food pantry, depending on what it is. A couple years ago I also make a formula donation to the womens shelter. I had several unopened cans of similac formula I got free in the mail that I never used. Ds was breastfed almost exclusively, and that's the only place that would take them.

There isn't a minimum that I know of. You just go online and enter all you want to give and they give you a date.
