Baby Gear Donations for Mums Supporting Families In Need

by EricaL (follow)
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.

Prams single and double (no strollers)
Girls and boys clothing sizes 6-16
