North Jersey Group Assists Families with Baby Items [AUDIO]

The Moms Helping Moms Foundation is helping mothers meet their babies’ basic needs by providing essential supplies and support.


The was started in Hudson County during the summer of 2011 by a group of mothers, who decided to dedicate their free time to aiding these fellow mother and families in need. Founder Bridget Cutler says the whole thing began very humbly with a series of basically free garage sales.

“So what I did was I actually went ahead and everybody who had donations, I gathered them up with the intention of donating them somewhere,” Cutler said.

Word quickly spread about the initiative and the ‘free garage sales’ morphed into community baby drives, where hundreds of families were outfitted with clothes, diapers, toys, strollers, and more.

“The way we operate is mostly through donations of goods from other moms, other families,” she explained.

While these drives have been wildly successful, Cutler said that Moms Helping Moms has shifted its model a bit to focus on more personal and one-on-one attention for the mothers they are assisting.

“They sort of give us a list of what it is they need, and then we either have it in our storage area or we go out to our network of donators,” Cutler said. “And we try to find the things that they need.”

The group is also exploring a possible expansion into Union County on the horizon.

“If you can do something to help, then why not, and that’s what we’re doing,” she said. “Everyone has the ability to do something to help others who are in less fortunate situations.”
