Moorelands Baby Bundles

Babies are especially vulnerable during the first few months of their lives and it is important during infancy that babies stay warm and dry to sustain healthy growth. Our Baby Bundles program gives children born into insufficiency the chance for healthy development that every child deserves.

Moorelands Baby Bundles program provides basic baby supplies and clothing to new mothers living in poverty in Toronto. Our bundles are used to educate new mothers about caring for their infants. Being able to provide their baby with new items and clothes increases the self-esteem of new mothers in need and makes for happier, more confident moms. It is the only program of its kind in Toronto provided at no cost to recipients and each year we distribute up to 250 Baby Bundles. We work in partnership with public health nurses and social service agency workers to identify new mothers in-need and to deliver the Bundles. These partnerships ensure that connections are made with new mothers and that they and their babies receive follow-up support.

Want to Help?

Moorelands gratefully accepts gift-in-kind donations of new items on the list (new items only; clothing size 6 months). Having a baby shower at work or with family & friends? Why not donate excess items to Moorelands, or hold a parallel shower for a baby in need? Celebrating the arrival of a new child or grandchild? Why not celebrate with a tribute donation? We can’t think of a more thoughtful way for new parents or grandparents to reach out to someone in need at their moment of greatest joy. Are you a knitter? Why not support Moorelands with your own hand-crafted sweater sets and baby blankets? For more information or to discuss details, please contact Danielle at 416-466-9987 x300 or by email.

On behalf of the mothers and babies we serve – thank you for being part of a caring community!
