Little Essentials offers at-risk families living in poverty urgently needed children’s supplies and parenting education to promote the health, wellbeing and safety of their children under five years of age. Tax ID 27-5281758


We deliver on our mission through our donation program and educational workshops.

Donation Program

We partner with shelters, social service agencies and other community organizations to provide urgently needed children’s supplies to at-risk families in New York City. 


We solicit donations of baby and children clothing and gear like diapers, car seats, strollers, and pack-n-plays and store them in our warehouse in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood. 

Partners place orders with us based on the up-to-the-minute needs of those they serve. We bundle orders for partners to pick up at our warehouse.

Educational Workshops with Tribeca Pediatrics

In the beginning, the sole focus of Little Essentials was our donation program. Over the years, however, we began supplementing this program with educational workshops in order to deepen our ability to help New York City children living in poverty. Thanks to our partnership with Tribeca Pediatrics, their expert physicians and nurses now teach our workshops, which cover maternal health and child safety topics such as CPR, breast feeding, and child development. 


Our partners contact us to let us know that they would like to offer a workshop to the families they serve. We arrange a time for Tribeca Pediatrics staff to go on-site to deliver the workshop.
