Bundles of Joy

Posted: December 14th, 2017 Posted In: Community Involvement

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to our colleagues who have generously donated to Moorelands’ Baby Bundles program. We have an amazing group of employees who contributed to our second annual gift-in-kind donation drive.

The Moorelands’ Baby Bundles program supports low income new mothers in Toronto, who are in need of assistance by providing basic supplies and clothing for their infants. Moorelands works with public health nurses and social service agency partners to recognize mothers who would benefit from receiving a Bundle. Since this is the only program of its kind in Toronto, these bundles are very valuable to the new mothers that receive them. Each year, Moorelands distributes up to 250 Baby Bundles at no cost to the recipients.

Growing up we always had what we needed. We were lucky. I simply can’t imagine what it would be like to be unable to provide for your child. A small gesture to me might mean the world to someone less fortunate. It doesn’t take much to make a difference.

I felt donating was important not only because it was timely with our own family welcoming a newborn and how fortunate we are to provide ourselves with what is necessary and beyond but I was also thinking about the Moorelands fundraiser gala last year that showed me how much they really help the community so of course I wanted to help in anyway I could. – Garrett, IT Operations
