We are here for all the children

Opening in 1928, Bambino is a non-profit thrift shop operated by friendly, helpful volunteers from several of the hospital's fund-raising Branches and community members solely for the benefit of UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland.

Bambino strives to sell quality items to benefit UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland, where no child is ever turned away because of an inability to pay. The proceeds from our work contribute to essential needs so the Hospital can continue to offer the highest level of care to its young patients.
