Anybody that has a baby knows about the maelstrom of shit – literal and figurative that comes with baby ownership. I can’t tell you what to do with the former (um. get rid of it. quickly?) but the latter, aka the bouncy seats, car seats, umbrella strollers and never ending parade of clothes, jackets, booties, shoes, and snowsuits… well you should drop them off at Baby Buggy so they can live again, on another baby!
Baby Buggy is a non-profit founded in 2001 by Jessica Seinfeld (Jerry’s wife) and has delivered over 3.5 million baby items to families in need through over 50 qualified social service partners. They’ve got a great volunteer network and accept donations at their loft in midtown. Check out the list of items they accept to make sure what you’ve got qualifies.
Then, arrange a drop off!
From their site:
We are located at 306 West 37th Street between 8th and 9th Avenue on the 8th Floor. You can come to our loft or we can meet you downstairs at our freight entrance on 37th Street. We are here Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If you are interested in dropping off, we ask that you call us at 212-736-1777 to schedule an appointment. Since we are a small staff, we want to make sure there is someone here to assist you.
So there you go! A place for your … you know.
