Help Us Collect
1000 Winter Outerwear Items and 1000 Baby Blankets
This Holiday Season!
From December 1 – 12, we will be collecting winter outerwear items and baby blankets to go home with local under-resourced and vulnerable families. These items make such a difference to the comfort of little ones and allow their parents to have increased flexibility and mobility during all kinds of weather. We have had amazing support over the past years as we have annually collected items during the holiday season and are excited to be doing this once again!
This year, our goal is to collect 1000 baby blankets and 1000 coats (sizes 0-2) in an effort to help keep babies warm during our coldest months. We have had some very positive growth for this initiative over the past several years and are excited to continue to build on that momentum! As many of the families we provide services to do not have appropriate outerwear for their little ones and typically travel by public transit or on foot, the impact having access to these items is tremendous.
We want to ensure that no baby goes without the items necessary to stay warm outdoors during Vancouver’s coldest months. You can help do this by donating a winter outerwear item!
Visit a Donation Pop-Up
We’ll be doing several community pop-ups (as well as opening at BabyGoRound!) on select dates to make sure donating is accessible for you.
Drop off your gently used or new winter outerwear items and baby blankets, as well as other baby gear donations, at the location nearest to you! To view the complete list of items that we are currently accepting, click here! Be sure to check that items are free of stains, cracks, rips, complete of all original parts, and are in the condition you would wish for your own child to use. All dates and locations will be accepting between 10am – 2pm. Stay tuned for more details in the coming month!
