Moorelands Baby Bundles program provides new mothers living below the poverty line with a gift to welcome their baby.
It is our intention that the bundles are used to help connect a new mom with a health care worker and community supports that will provide education in the care of their baby. As you know, babies are especially vulnerable during the first few months of their lives. Typically, bundles consist of basic baby supplies, a blanket and sleepers.
Moorelands Baby Bundles program is provided at no cost to recipients and each year we aim to help up to 250 new mothers. We work in partnership with public health nurses and social service agency workers to identify new mothers in-need and to deliver the bundles. Through these partnerships, new moms have the opportunity to connect with and receive follow-up community support. We provide one bundle per baby.
