The Baby Buggy, Inc.

Baby Buggy provides essential items for infants and children to New York City families living in poverty. We accomplish this by collecting new and gently used items from corporations and families and delivering them to the communities with the highest rates of family poverty. Working with a network of social service sites throughout the five boroughs of New York, bringing cribs, strollers, clothing and diapers to families in need, we have delivered over 2,600,000 items to date.

School Supplies, Winter Gear and Holiday Gifts for families in the Bronx

Baby Buggy's most recent donation to the Baby Buggy Family Resource Center at St. Anthony's Head Start in the Bronx included over 3,740 baby items and gear, which included the usual items ranging from diapers and strollers to car seats and bath tubs.  This donation also included adorable Halloween costumes so that the children enrolled in this program (and their siblings) would have beautiful costumes and be able to participate in Halloween festivities!  

This donation also included additional school supplies to ensure the children continue to have all the necessary supplies to be confident and successful in school.  We also supplied them with a range of winter gear to keep these little ones warm throughout the fall and winter.

Baby Buggy donations are distributed to client families enrolled in the Family Resource Center at St. Anthony's to meet their critical needs for baby items and gear.  Baby Buggy also distributes books, toys, bath products, etc. that can be distributed to families as incentives to encourage participation in various educational workshops addressing debt reduction/credit repair, career development, nutrition, safety, parenting, etc.  These incentives are also distributed when families reach their personal goals that have been set with the Family Workers at St. Anthony's.  These goals often include going back to school, obtaining employment, opening a checking/savings account, saving a specific amount of money, etc.

For the holidays, Baby Buggy is going to donate wrapped gifts of toys and books for the children at St. Anthony's and their siblings!  Baby Buggy wants to ensure the families enrolled in the Family Resource Center have all the baby items, gear, and winter clothing they need, as well as holiday gifts to bring some cheer into their lives during this holiday season.

Back to School!

Baby Buggy continues to support the 60 families enrolled in the Family Resource Center in the Bronx; these families receive regular donations of critical baby gear, diapers, clothing and many other essentials. Since March 2008, Baby Buggy has donated 87,269 items to client families enrolled in the Family Resource Center!

We recently sent a donation of over 1,000 items to the Family Resource Center to help these families participate in exciting 'back to school' rituals as they now have the necessary supplies and resources to do so. These donations will certainly help the children get off to a great start this school year!

Baby Buggy is currently recruiting client families enrolled in the Family Resource Center to participate in a Credit Where Credit Is Due workshop cycle that is scheduled for October. This will help these families develop personal financial plans, create a monthly budget, open bank accounts and improve their credit scores - this workshop is such a valuable resource. The combination of Baby Buggy donations, which help to off-set the expenses associated with purchasing costly baby supplies and gear, and these financial education workshops can truly help improve their financial situation!

Great Strides

Baby Buggy offered a fifth cycle of Credit Where Credit Is Due financial education workshops on May 18, 2010 through the Baby Buggy Family Resource Center at St. Anthony’s Head Start in the Bronx. In addition to providing these client families with ongoing donations of critical gear and other essential baby supplies, Baby Buggy is currently scheduling individual financial counseling sessions for the graduates. The purpose of these sessions is to ensure the graduates have the necessary support to help them meet the goals set in their personal financial plans. We could not be more proud of the great strides these families have taken to reduce their debt, increase their savings, open education savings accounts for their children, and improve their credit scores!

On May 14th, 19 families enrolled in the Baby Buggy Family Resource Center at St. Anthony’s volunteered for a Baby Buggy mending project. Baby Buggy regularly receives corporate donations of beautiful, brand new children’s clothing; some of these donations include sample clothing with small tears. Volunteers regularly help mend this clothing so that they can be donated; the families at St. Anthony’s have graciously lent a helping hand to mend this clothing so that it could be passed along to other families in need!
