  • Do you live in Manitoba?
  • Are you pregnant?
  • Are you living in poverty, getting Income Assistance or Disability, or having trouble making ends meet no matter how hard you try?
  • Do you need baby clothes and baby items?

If you answered yes to all four questions, we will find a volunteer to collect, make and deliver to you a set of newborn to 18 month baby clothes (if needed), one ‘wish list’ baby item, a few other helpful baby items and a big sibling gift if you have other children.

Please only apply if you have no other way to get your baby what they need. Most of the expectant parents who apply for a gift do not have friends or family to give them baby items, are single parents or young couples living on Income Assistance, are newcomers to Canada who are starting over, are parents leaving abusive relationships, or parents who have had a series of tough breaks who need help.

If you have successfully applied for a gift, please know that we will contact you once you are at the top of the waiting list.

Total delivered gifts:3273

Note: If your baby is already born, please check our list of Other Resources for help, as due to our long waiting times we are unable to provide a gift before your older baby would outgrow the majority of the donated items in sizes newborn to 18 months.
