Make a Difference

Pregnant and new families we support, be it through our family support, groups or outreach programs are often in need of material support.

To meet their needs, we collect donations of baby goods and clothing, new or in good and safe condition to give to pregnant women and young families. We also collect maternity wear and other goods for mothers.

For families to be offered the most dignified access to support, we ask that all goods have been checked individually by you before you donate.

Contact us for any specific questions in regards to donations and to find out when and where to donate goods.

To find out more please download our donation list.
