BABY PROGRAM

 

 

We help eligible economically disadvantaged families with their infants and toddlers with baby equipment & supplies. If you have items you want to donate, we welcome your support and donation. We utilize strict guidelines for the acceptance of used baby items for the protection of others receiving items donated for their infants & toddlers at no charge. When you fill out an application remember to attach your proof of income, if you are applying without an agency. If you are applying through Catholic Charities, Chicago Family Health Center, Ill Department of Public Aid, City of Chicago Department of Health, Ill Department of Human Services, Aid For Women, WIC Offices, City of Chicago Public Services, Health Leads(Past Clients), Firman Community Center, Family Health Network or through other agencies approved by Grant A Wish. You will not need proof of income, because these agencies will vouch for you through their client records and we waive the need for proof of income.

Our Grant A Wish Baby Program helps families provide for their infants and toddlers, from infants up to the age of 5 years old. When available we provide (New or Gently Used Baby Items) a variety of Baby Clothing for infants & toddlers (Boy/Girl), Baby Blankets, Baby Bottles, Milk, Baby Food, Diapers, (single & double) Strollers, Baby Walkers, Baby Swings, High Chairs, Activity Centers, Toys, Children’s Books, Car Seats, Playpens, Bassinets, Cribs,  and just about any other essential equipment & supplies that your baby may need, providing that we have the items in stock at the time you come in for your appointment. To the general public, if you have items other families can use, we ask you to consider donating the items to us. We don’t charge anything for what you donate to us, it is given away to those in need through our program.

GAW Baby Program-2013 056We encourage the donation of all kinds of baby supplies & equipment to our Baby Program. We accept financial contributions to help purchase much needed new baby supplies, like diapers, baby wipes, pacifiers, baby bottles, baby oil & powder, and so many other needed items for infants especially. We accept gift cards or you can buy items yourself, then donate them to us for families to receive. We also accept baby items that you have purchased in general and never used the items. We are constantly making improvements to enhance our Baby Program for economically disadvantaged families. We help families to get the needed baby items for their infants and toddlers. We help families take care of their precious little ones, by helping the families or mom with the needed baby supplies, that is one of our main goals through the Grant A Wish Baby Program.

All babies are special and they require the items to help their caretakers be able to provide better care for them, especially families with limited financial resources.

Through this program we are working towards helping those who qualify to receive our help. We hope our services will continue to help mothers & fathers in need. We prefer a social worker or someone in a professional capacity to vouch for the particular needs of a mother or father, by sending in a letter on their agency letterhead advocating an interest in our program and explaining the needs of their client. The agency must also provide proof of income unless you have been given a waiver, to not send one. We want to help those who have nowhere else to turn for supplies, so the children will not suffer because of a lack of money to purchase the much needed items. If companies or corporations would like to make a collective baby supply drive at your place of business to support this program, we welcome your support and the support of your employees.

We are in need of all sizes of diapers and quantities. We are in need of glass baby bottles, baby monitors, baby furniture, baby carriers(hospital births), baby wipes, baby pacifiers, baby oil, baby powder, baby equipment, baby blankets for newborns, baby room decorations and just about anything you think a baby would need, preferably new still in the package. Some items you don’t want to get used, it will only be given out new.

You can help our baby program by donating baby supplies you no longer need or items that you are willing to part with that your child no longer needs. We accept items that are in very good condition or new(never opened). Just because some people are on public assistance, doesn’t mean that we should settle for giving them anything. Give them something of value that they can use for their baby, which in turn will help their family and in turn it will help you feel better about what you were able to contribute for the sake of others you don’t know. Help provide ” Gifts that make a Difference ” to someone in need. Grant A Wish wants to help provide baby supplies to as many economically disadvantaged families in need that apply, but it is based on financial or in kind donations from the general public that really make the difference in what we are able to accomplish.
