Little Essentials improves the health, safety and wellbeing of children living in poverty by providing urgently needed resources and parenting education to families in crisis. 

We moved our warehouse to Manhattan:

Little Essentials was born in Brooklyn and our heart will always be in Brooklyn. In the last five years, we've helped over 23,000 indigent Brooklyn children with your generously donated gently-used essentials and financial support. But with 30% of NYC children living in poverty, our help is needed city-wide. 

Our vision has always been to expand across all five boroughs to reach as many at-risk NYC children as possible.  We are thrilled to announce that as of January 2017 we will be moving our warehouse to 15 Warren Street to provide a more central location for our partner organizations across the city. 

We've been incredibly fortunate over the years to have had such strong support from the Brooklyn community of parents, and we will continue to make it possible for them to continue to help by offering drop-off locations in Brooklyn. Please check our website for updates. 

These last five years have been a remarkable journey and we are thrilled to be able to grow and continue our good work in keeping NYC children warm, healthy and safe. 


Help NYC children.
