The New Mom Project is operated within a community health framework with a focus to provide safe sleeping environments, safe car seats to bring baby home from the hospital, carriers or strollers to reduce isolation and provide transportation to doctor’s appointments, as well as seasonal clothing for the infant (source: New Mom Project).
Due to COVID-19, the New Mom Project closed their donation center and cancelled their drop-off service. There are three ways you can support them at that moment:
> Join their private group on Facebook where you can donate your baby items to a mom in need:
> Support a new mom with a Baby Bundle:

The Baby Tuck Shop provides free essential maternity and baby items to families receiving obstetric care at St. Michael’s Hospital (source: St Michael’s Hospital).
They accept gently used and clean items for babies up to 12 months. Things like cribs, bassinets, blankets, shoes and bibs, are all acceptable items. Contactless Drop off is available at St Michael’s Hospital- 61 Queen St E, Toronto ON M5C 2T2.
Please visit their website to arrange a contactless drop off:
The list is not long and our goal is to keep updating it once the things will get back to normal. We are very aware that some organizations may never get back to their previous way of operating but the need for baby items, just like the need for furniture, clothing and food, never ends.
Let’s keep supporting our local communities. Because we can.
