We need your help to keep children safe & warm this winter by providing the critical cold-weather gear they need.
Thank you for participating in our Gear Up for Winter program by volunteering your time, your money, and your new & gently-used children's items!
Thank you to our sponsors:
Gear Up for Baby recognizes the specialized needs of the youngest children we serve – those aged 0 to 24 months. Help us help babies in need across the region by donating funds, time, and baby product.
Visit our Virtual Baby Shower to find out how you can help!
Most Needed Items are immediate needs of children's essential items in our warehouse. The most prevalent out-of-stock items are new underwear & socks, pants, winter coats, and books.
