As a corporate volunteer coordinator I work with numerous non profits to schedule volunteer projects for our eager employees. Baby Buggy has been extremely generous in being flexible around our employee’s schedules and always making the volunteer experience a complete success. Their volunteer projects allow you to experience client facing projects in a different way. By allowing volunteers the opportunity to be creative in putting together bundles of clothing, volunteers are able to give of their personal touch to the families served.

Plum Organics is proud to have Baby Buggy as a lead partner of The Full Effect, our program dedicated to nourishing babies and tots in need across America. Working with the Baby Buggy team is always a pleasure, and with their help we've been able to get healthy, nutritious food into the hands of little ones in need. Kudos to this great organization!

Our organization has enjoyed a partnership with Baby Buggy for nearly two years, and they have been phenomenal! Playing an integral part in serving the in-kind needs for our clients, Baby Buggy has provided thousands of items to our families. They have also gone above and beyond for our clients on a number of occasions, providing specialized items that were impossible for families to afford. The items we have received have truly touched the lives of the children and families we serve. By filling the gaps with these daily necessities, our families are able to work on recovering from the trauma of family and community violence, to move towards leading healthy, productive lives. Many thanks to the New York and Los Angeles teams for their support. Their commitment to families in need is amazing.

I have been co-chair of Los Angeles's Baby Buggy for over a year now. The organization is as efficient as it is effective. I have had the pleasure to witness the magical effects Baby Buggy has had on families throughout the country. They touch mothers on a personal level with love, kindness and absolute essentials for their young children. They arm dad's with support and guidance that allows them to be the best partners and father figures they can be. It also creates community to those it serves and those that serve it, truly giving to everyone involved.

I have been associated with Baby Buggy for over 10 years. It is rare to find an organization that approaches serving families in need with such deep compassion and dignity. The Baby Buggy team
is also analytical, responsive, and effective. They work with the most respected community based organizations and programs. They work with professionals who ensure that the Baby Buggy items not only meet an immediate material need, but help provide access and connection to the communities where the families live. I have seen the results of Baby Buggy's work. I have met the parents and children. This organization is making a difference.

I have been with baby buggy for several years now as a Co-chair in the Los Angeles division.
Simply put, they get it right. Their tireless work with some of the greatest and most affective organizations, such as NFP and The Elizabeth House to name a few, makes them definitely stand out and shine. This non-profit is the perfect combination of a group of committed moms and professionals who combine their time, and talents to make the most impact in the lives of families in need. The donations and items they are able to give to those moms and families changes lives, gives hope and direction, and confidence to these oh so vulnerable new parents. Changing lives and ending poverty starts with the mom, and baby and family, and BB is one of the orgs that is determined to stand up and do what needs to be done. With their star power members to boot and fun events as well, this organization has it all and is growing everyday.

As someone who is on several boards, it's been incredibly rewarding and refreshing to see how organized, thoughtful and impactful baby buggy is. from their analysis of the organizations, the criteria for which organizations need to qualify to participate and the thoroughness with which they ensure board members understand and participate in a on-the-ground level with the families that benefit is remarkable and highly noteable.

"As a grandmother of four, I was delighted to learn that Baby Buggy accepts gently-used baby items that my grandchildren have rapidly grown out of. They got so much use and fun out of these strollers, educational toys, books, and clothes, but I hated for them to go to waste now that my grandchildren no longer need them. I was thrilled to be able to donate these items to a high-quality organization that will ensure that they get into the hands of local children who need them. I would definitely donate to Baby Buggy again and will recommend this non-profit to my friends and family members."

Baby Buggy is a wonderful organization that is truly dedicated to helping families in need. It is so thoughtful in the way it plugs in to a myriad of anti-poverty programs to get the right type of equipment and donations to families. It was so easy for me to become involved and once involved, educated as to what I can do to help.

My wife and I supported Baby Buggy this year as donors to the Bedtime Bash carnival in Central Park. We loved bringing our grandchildren to this fun event and we believe very strongly in the important work Baby Buggy is doing to help low-income families. We will be back next year to show our support of this high impact charitable organization

As a corporate sponsor we support Baby Buggy's mission to assist needy families with essentials for a child's safety + well being. Baby Buggy's approach with both grass roots donations and corporate sponsors like Stokke provide a wide breadth of items to support both parent & child. Baby Buggy is a well run organization able to mobilize quickly during times of crisis like Hurricane Sandy and maintain a steady stream of constant community support through its outreach network. The staff at Baby Buggy are consummate, caring professionals focused on improving the lives of those served and are a joy to work with! Charlotte Addison, Director, STOKKE

Baby Buggy is such a special organization to me and many others. One of the unique things about Baby Buggy is that it is responsive to gaps in the community or needs that may arise. Over the years, the programs have continued to grow and evolve as the various community needs become apparent. Another special aspect is that generosity fuels the organization -- there is room for everyone to get involved and Baby Buggy holds a special place in the heart of so many, from volunteers to individual and corporate donors. With such a noble mission and a caring, dedicated and. unstoppable team, this organization performs miracles day in and day out and does not rest until the needs of client families are met. It is such an effective organization and the impact is undeniable. I am incredibly proud to have been a part of the Baby Buggy team for several years and it is an experience and time in my life that I will always hold close.

Over the course of five years, I worked in both the in-kind (donation) and volunteer management sectors of the organization. Trust me when I say that Baby Buggy is a game-changer. Every layer of the non-profit is wholehearted in its intentions and ingrained with its values and outpourings of Love Recycled. From the extremely generous donors to the countless, weekly volunteer groups, the energy is palatable and contagious. In a world that can be especially cruel, Baby Buggy restores hope in a better tomorrow for each of its families and gives parents the confidence, skills and essentials they need to get up each and every morning. It changed my life and I will always be proud to be a part of its family. I hope you do, too.
