Baby Bear

What we do

Baby Bear celebrates life and aims to provide parents, grandparents, and other guardians of Norwood children, from newborn to 5 years old, the resources they need for their children to grow up in a productive, healthy, and safe environment.

We provide free diapers and other baby necessities, community meals, and assistance in preparing kids for Kindergarten and education beyond.

Since re-starting Baby Bear in 2018, we have served 139 unique individual families, and over 79 volunteers have served at the “free shop.” We have also been able to bring on one paid part-time staff member.

During the pandemic, Baby Bear is still open and following proper safety guidelines. Please contact us via Facebook if you have a donation of diapers, clothes or other items.
