BENEFITING: BABY BUGGY INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
Help the 2012 ING NYC Baby Buggy Marathon Team raise money for NYC's most vulnerable families!
Founded in 2001 by Jessica Seinfeld, Baby Buggy is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing families in need across the U.S. with essentials for their children aged 0-12
Baby Buggy works with a network of over 50 community based organizations (CBOs) to distribute new and gently used essentials: from cribs and strollers to clothing and bottles, all of which are vetted for safety. Sadly, over 2,100 families in our network live in the Rockaways and Staten Island - two areads hardest hit by the storm. They are in need of diapers, coats and many other essentials. Baby Buggy will allocate funds raised through the marathon to purchase these items for families who have lost homes, jobs, power and other critical items due to Hurricane Sandy.
How We Give
Baby Buggy distributes product through 50+ carefully selected CBOs, each of which apply annually to become a recipient. Each month, the organizations submit the items they need for the families they serve. Based on available inventory, Baby Buggy does our best to fill these requests, providing approximately 60,000 items each month.
