Baby and maternity goods
Donate for the purchase of baby and maternity goods
Each year, Caroline Chisholm Society needs $20,000 to provide services that are not traditionally
funded by government. Financial contributions ensure we can meet the particular needs of families. $20,000 pays for:
- 15 mums to have their baby without costs at a public hospital.
- 200 mums to join breastfeeding classes.
- 200 bassinet Baby Boxes.
- 80 new cots.
- 40 mums and bubs to gather at 4 supported playgroups.
- 100 families to get a set of educational toys.
We see between 1,000 and 1,500 families per year, depending on funding. These mums and families are experiences a wide variety of issues, including poverty, homelessness, family violence, mental health issues and life controlling addictions. The baby and maternity goods we give, be it nappies, clothing or more substantial items, make a tangible different in families lives.
