Quick Overview: Baby2Baby provides low-income children ages 0-12 years with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves. By distributing new and gently used items to over 170 non-profit organizations, Baby2Baby is on track to reach 180,000 children this year.
Mission: Baby2Baby collects new and gently used clothes, toys, hygiene products, and other childcare essentials from 40 drop off locations and from 125 seasonal donation drives throughout Los Angeles. We also work closely with corporations including Kimberly-Clark (Huggies), The Honest Company, Tiny Prints, Sketchers and Old Navy who generously donate items. We organize and re-distribute these items out to non-profit partner organizations who then in turn give them to people in need within LA county. These partner organizations include homeless and domestic violence shelters, Head Start programs and children's hospitals.
Impact: Your volunteer efforts sorting and organizing the donations that we receive is key to Baby2Baby achieving our mission. Baby2Baby receives thousands of donations each week and it is with the help of volunteers that we are able to ensure that every item that is distributed is of the highest quality and makes every child feel deserving and dignified. It is with the help of our volunteers that we are then able to distribute these items to the 180,000 children that we are set to serve this year.
Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: Our volunteers help with a range of different activities to ensure that every item that leaves Baby2Baby is held to our Golden Standard. Each item that is donated to Baby2Baby is inspected with the greatest care by our hard working volunteer groups to ensure that all clothing is free of stains and holes, toys are clean and ready to use, and every item is something you would give to a child you love. Volunteers also help to create customized gift bags for the children we serve and stock an overflowing shopping area where our partners choose items for the low-income children they work with daily.
