Canadian Baby Box Contents
New Mom Project is proud to accept your monetary donations through our PayPal account. Please click the link under the “Donate” tab and contribute to the items that go into our Canadian Baby Box and for our operating costs associated with producing and delivering the package.
In an attempt to offer a “Canadian Baby Box” similar to the Finnish baby box, we are accepting the following items:
- Nearly new baby clothing from 0-12 month sizes, including onesies, sleepers, pants, dresses, socks, shoes, snowsuits and hats.
- Baby blankets
- Newborn and size 1 diapers (open packages are fine and larger sizes are greatly needed)
- Unopened baby bath products
- Small infant toys and books
Items not included in our standard “Canadian Baby Box“, given at request and when available:
- New Car seats (purchased through our monetary donations)
- Nursing supplies (At this time we are not able to accept used breast pumps for sanitary reasons)
- Infant carriers
- New bottles and unopened formula
- Bumbo seats
- Bouncy chairs
- Play mats
- cribs * (no drop sides, and please check for recalls, thanks!)
We ask that you donate items that are in full working order with no missing parts, free from stains and are clean. Baby gear should be no more than 10 years old in order that it meets current safety standards, otherwise it will not be distributed to our clients. Large items like cribs cannot be left at our drop off sites, they must be brought to the main site at 27 Cobham Crescent, Toronto.
The New Mom Project schedules drop off dates for donations at a variety of Toronto locations on a regular basis. Join our Facebook group for updates on a drop off near you.
