We announced our partnership with the amazing charity Stripey Stork back in January and have been working closely together ever since. Natural Baby Shower are dedicated to helping the Stripey Stork team as much as possible to support them in making a difference to families in need. We have donated essential baby and family items, money donations and also supported their #mum2mum campaign to show all Mum’s the love on Mother’s day.
But we thought it was about time the NBS team volunteered their actual time at Stripey Stork to help them in their warehouse and truly get stuck in. A team of 7 excited and eager members of the NBS team made their way to Stripey Stork HQ to help make a difference. The team at Stripey Stork made us so welcome and we were all super keen to get stuck in.
Our team of volunteers were tasked with sorting through the pile of clothes donations the public were kind and generous enough to donate. We had to sort them into gender and age, and check they were all clean and suitable to gift to the families supported by Stripey Stork. Once these were all sorted into category boxes we then got to work packing them into clothing packs that will then be given to families who need the extra support. These packs gave a little one every type of clothing they would need; a light jacket, knickers and socks, long and short sleeved tops, trousers, pyjamas and so much more! They also take into consideration seasons so add gloves and hats in winter and swimwear and hats for summer.
The whole NBS team came away feeling amazing knowing we have helped make a difference and extremely humbled from hearing all the stories from the members at Stripey Stork. It was a very special day and NBS will definitely be volunteering our time more in the future to this amazing charity. Thanks for having us Stripey Stork!
