Babies In Need (BIN)

Babies In Need (BIN) is an all-volunteer organization that serves needy newborns in Southwest Washington. About 35 of the 500+ babies born each month in Clark & Cowlitz Counties, WA, need our help. These newborns' families find themselves struggling to provide even the basics for their babies' care. Many of the parents Babies In Need serves are being impacted by single parenthood, low (or no) income, homelessness, no family nearby for support, premature or special needs babies, domestic violence or substance abuse, medical problems and job loss.

BIN's mission is to ensure that every baby in Southwest Washington has essential clothing, bedding and car seats. BIN gift packs provide these and other items parents need during their baby’s first few months of life.

One of the most treasured and needed items is a baby blanket or quilt for mothers (and fathers) to wrap around their baby. We have been blessed with an abundance of crocheted and knit blankets, but we always need receiving blankets and quilts.

Since 1999 Babies In Need has gifted 2576 carseats, 5054 layette gift packs, 5054 baby blankets & quilts, and 876 sibling bags to needy families. There are many ways to donate to Babies In Need, but gifts of newborn receiving blankets and quilts are especially appreciated.

Here are the details for donating: Babies In Need, P.O. Box 65825, Vancouver, WA 98665. Drop off locations for baby blankets are available throughout Vancouver, Washington and in Longview, Washington.

Babies In Need is part of a 501(c)3 organization. Gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Babies In Need's Federal Tax EIN Number is 91-1049465.
