Storkcraft Partners with Baby2Baby to Help Children in Need
July 27, 2017
At Storkcraft, we understand that many families have a challenging time providing all necessities to ensure their children’s needs are met. With this in mind, we are very honored to announce we have made a donation to help low-income children across the United States. We partnered with Baby2Baby and donated almost 300 convertible cribs and 300 crib mattresses with bedding to children in need!
Baby2Baby, founded by Kelly Sawyer Patricof and Norah Weinstein, is a non-profit organization which provides low-income children with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves. Since their establishment in 2011 Baby2Baby has helped over 422,000 children! In 2014, they launched a Sweet Dreams initiative to fulfill all requests to provide a crib, bassinet or play yard to every child in the program who needs a safe place to sleep. Over the past 3 years, 100% of the safe sleep requests in the program have been met! “We believe every child should have a safe place to sleep and are extremely honored to be able to do our part in the community,” says our CEO, Adam Segal. “Storkcraft is very excited about our new partnership with Baby2Baby and we look forward to many more donations in kind as a new official sponsor of Baby2Baby’s Sweet Dreams initiative.”
Inspired by the incredible impact this charity has had on countless families, our CEO, Adam Segal, along with other members of our Storkcraft team, traveled to Los Angeles to assist with the crib donation and meet the Baby2Baby team. Our team went to Baby2Baby’s warehouse to deliver the cribs and got a chance to learn about the operations and see all the other products destined for families in need.
Afterwards, we visited Baby2Baby’s headquarters and met with Kelly and Norah, who were extremely appreciative of this donation. We learned that they have a very long waiting list for cribs and always have a tough time keeping up with the demand. All 300 cribs we donated were already spoken for before they even arrived.
Giving back has always been important to us at Storkcraft. We have partnered with many charities and organizations such as NeighbourLink Calgary, BabyGoRound, Helping Families in Need, and more. We hope to have a long partnership with Baby2Baby and will continue to make donations whenever possible!
