About

The Baby Box Project:

Open Door Family Medical Centers delivers 450 babies a year. That's almost 40 new babies born each month. We know that our new parents often lack essential "baby basics" and the Baby Box initiative is a response to this problem. The actual box becomes a bassinet, and we add baby essentials, as well as coupons for Health and Wellness classes, prenatal and post-partum classes, and prenatal support with our Patient Advocates.

Please host a Baby Essential Drive: We can use your help to collect:

  • Sleep sacks (non-swaddling) or Layette gowns, newborn or size small
  • Infant Thermometer or Infant Health Kit
  • Bilingual Baby Book
  • Diapers size 1
  • Wipes
  • Diaper Rash Cream
  • Infant Toy
  • Outfits, Onesies, Sleep & Play: newborn or 3 months

We need about 40 of each item, each month. Please consider hosting a drive at your organization, office, faith-based organization, school or just donate to help a new baby have a better start.

Individual donations are appreciated and can be taken to any Open Door health center during all business hours. We would love for groups or organizations to consider adopting a month! For drives or larger donations our collection space is in Ossining and delivers would be really appreciated! Please contact Alicia Ward at 914-502-1468 or email award@odfmc.org.

If you are interested, we host baby box assembly days at our Ossining and Port chester locations. Ossining is typically the first Monday of each month from 9:30am - until finished or 12:00pm and Port Chester is the second Monday of each month from 12:30pm - until finished or 3:00pm. please contact Alicia Ward.
