*IMPORTANT UPDATE: WE ARE CLOSED*
After 11 years, You Can’t Spoil a Baby has closed it’s doors for an unknown amount of time. Change happens to the best of us and we need time to reassess our future of offering baby supplies to Manitoba families in need.
We know that the need for resources is huge right now so this decision was not made lightly. Thank you for being there with us along this journey and we hope to be back in the future. 💜
In the meantime, if you need baby supplies or are looking for a place to donate your baby things, consider checking out Manitoba 211 where you can search for government, health and social services, 24/7 in many languages.
Thank you for choosing to donate your once loved or new baby items to YCSAB! To donate accepted baby items, all you need to do is locate a convenient Drop Spot location on the map below and click on the location for information about dropping items off. If you would like to ‘Make One Gift’ and deliver it to a family in need, apply here to receive information about how the MOG program works and to be matched with a family.
Our team is always growing so we are always adding new locations to make it easier for you to donate your items. If you don’t see a Drop Spot near you, consider becoming a volunteer! Thanks for being part of our project!
If you don’t have gently used baby items of your own to donate, consider shopping at Once Upon a Child- Winnipeg West, as they sell gently used baby and kids items and offer our fans 20% off of their gently used stock, and 10% off of their new items. Simply shop at their 1330 Ellice Avenue store for items to help with baby’s first two years, inform their staff that you are donating them to YCSAB’s in store donation bin, and they will apply the discount to your bill. OUAC-WW staff will then get your donation to our volunteers who will then deliver them into the homes of expectant Manitoba families in need.
If you’d like a list of our high need items prior to your shopping trip, please email us at email@example.com. Or save yourself the hassle of emailing us and purchase sleepers/pajamas in the 6-12 month or 12-18 month range because we are always out of them. Thank you SO much!
