About Us

Our Mission

Neighbors Helping Newborns provides comfort and necessities to premature and newborn babies at hospitals in New Hampshire and Massachusetts by:

  • Making hand-made garments for hospitalized and premature babies
  • Sewing bereavement items for babies who do not survive
  • Packaging hand-made items and store-bought infant clothing into layettes for families with a financial need

Last year, Neighbors Helping Newborns donated more than 11,000 items to local hospitals. All items are given, free of charge, to families in crisis.

Our Organization

Neighbors Helping Newborns is an all-volunteer organization based in southern New Hampshire. We have been caring for our newest neighbors since 2001.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit, so donations are tax-deductible. (Receipts are available upon request.)

Join Your Neighbors

Volunteers meet the fourth Wednesday of every month from 9:00 AM until noon at the First Congregational Church in Kingston, New Hampshire, to sew specialized clothing for hospitalized infants and to package donations for babies who lack the basic necessities. Join us this month!

On Hiatus Until March 2021

We have temporarily suspended operations due to the pandemic. There will be no work group meetings or hospital donations until the health crisis has passed.
