Baby Items to Give Away

Hi moms, I have quite a few baby items (clothes, blankets, car seats, swings) that I'm no longer using. Everything is in good condition. I would like to donate them to an organization that gives the items to those in need (not sells them, like Goodwill). I'd prefer a non-religious organization, such as a women's shelter or homeless shelter. I live in the North Shore, but would be willing to drop the things off somewhere. Thanks.

Hello,

My name is G.. I am not an organization but I am a mother in need. I am residing here in New York, Bronx. I have no family here and I have other children, and I am expecting soon. I am having a difficult high risk pregnancy, I am having a baby girl. My child's father has been trying to find a job and has come to a dead end every time. I am 6 months pregnant, and I do not have anyone to turn to, I am interested in the things that you are giving away, if you are interested in helping. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I am sorry, I am just desparate for some kind of help to prepeare for my baby coming.

New Moms Inc is a wonderful organization located in North Chicago. www.newmomsinc.org I've donated stuff there last year. They help teen moms get off the streets of Chicago, they are abused or come from abused homes. They provide shelter for these teens moms and they go through a "finishing" school to help them adapt to the world.
