What We Do

A non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing baby essentials such as clothing, diapers, wipes and bottles to children birth to seven years who are in critical need.

We partner with community organizations that refer caregivers to us, these caregivers shop free of charge at our store in Beverly MA.

How it Works

We collect like-new baby clothing through donations (sizes newborn- 7 years) at our storefront in Beverly, MA. We also accept diapers, wipes and new baby bottles as well as new baby items.

We partner with several local organizations that provide help to families with young children in critical need of basic supplies. Some organizations we partner with include, Wellspring, Action Inc., and HAWC. 

Caregivers referred by a partnering agency shop at our store free of charge. Social workers may also shop for families – filling baskets on their behalf and delivering to their doorsteps. 

We believe that providing basic needs to babies birth to five increases positive caregiver-child connection, decreases child maltreatment and infection and helps our community. The research agrees. Please see the links below to read more about this important area of need.
