Your baby is no longer a baby, and there's no more little bundles on the horizon. What do you do with all that baby gear you've stored? Save it for your friends and family? Maybe. Otherwise, you could donate your stuff to those that need it most.

There's no harm in donating your goods to your nearest opportunity shop, or, you could give your unwanted baby gear to Mums Supporting Families In Need.

Op shops love your unwanted stuff, but sometimes, they are in-fluxed with the amount of baby gear they get. Mums Supporting Families In Need on the other hand, is a not-for-profit organisation providing specific donated items to disadvantaged families in the local area.

Due to an overabundance of some items, Mums Supporting Families In Need require specific donations, which are needed most. Right now for example, the following items are listed are in demand, taken from the msfin website. You will notice, that some of the items on the list are not specific to babies:

Cots – less than 10 years old and clean mattresses
Bassinets, change tables and mattresses
Car Seats – less than 7 years old and accident free.
Prams – single and double (no strollers)
Girls and boys clothing sizes 6-16
Bassinet, cot and single bed linen
Nappies, wipes and infant formula
New toiletries
New socks and undies for all ages
Kids/teen backpacks and schoolbags

Where do you donate your unwanted goods? The following drop off points are currently listed:

Aspendale, Berwick, Carlton, Cranbourne North, Ferney Creek, Langwarrin, Lysterfield, Hastings, Kalorama, Mt Eliza, Mornington, Noble Park, Narre Warren, Oakleigh South, Rosebud, Rye, Seaford, Vermont, Werribee, Wonga Park.

Alternatively, contact donations (@) msfin.org.au to establish your nearest drop off point.
