SUMMIT, NJ - What began as a simple idea by a local group of new mothers who shared the common ideal that no baby should ever have to go without life’s basic necessities, has turned into a large network of like-minded people who work together to help hundreds of babies and young children each year.

Moms Helping Moms Foundation provides low income families with baby essentials like diapers, wipes, and clothing. Local mom, Bridget Cutler of New Providence, was overwhelmed by all the gifts she received from family and friends when she had her first baby. She wanted to donate some of the gifts to families who weren’t as fortunate. The issue was she couldn’t find an organization to give to, so she founded Moms Helping Moms to fill the gap. 

Moms Helping Moms forms partnerships with community organizations, social workers, homeless shelters, schools, and others to collect and distribute we have collected and distribute diapers, clothing, formula, nursing supplies, strollers and countless other baby essentials to families in need.

One in three American families cope with 'diaper need', the ability to provide clean, dry diapers for their babies. Diaper cost families up to $1,000 annually per child, with studies showing 'diaper need' is more distressing to moms than not having enough food for their family. What's more, moms of families with 'diaper need' report more difficulty with stress management, depression and coping with trauma, which can negatively affect a child's health and development. 

The Foundation will be hosting  its Third Annual Snowball Gala January 28 at Shackamaxon Country Club in Scotch Plains -- the evening featuring food, drinks, music, silent auction, raffle, and games. Individual tickets and sponsorship packages, priced at $90-up, are available by visiting momshelpingmomsfoundation.org.
