Snow Suits for Babies and Kids

Parkdale Parent's Primary Prevention Program

Baby, it's cold outside

Cold weather means time for snowball fights, hot chocolate and cozy nights inside.  It’s also the season of layers, layers and more layers!  Parents know the stress of trying to get little ones dressed for the cold.  It can take 10 minutes of struggle just to get the jacket on – let alone finding the missing mitts!  By the time the dressing is completed, the dreaded phase, “Mom, I need to pee”! 

Parkdale Parents Primary Prevention Program (the 5P’s) in Toronto is a program that provides support, nutrition and community services to families with children ranging in age from 0 to 3 years.  Outerwear is expensive for these families resulting in parents wrapping young ones in blankets or placing them in oversized snowsuits which could be dangerous. 

How you can help

Let’s put a smile on these kids faces as they play in the snow, build snowman and sled down the hills without parents worrying about them getting too cold.  We’re pooling funds to purchase snowsuits for sizes 6-12 months and 2 to 4 years. 

We’re also accept gently used, clean snowsuits from smoke and pet free homes.  Let’s declutter those front closets and bundle up some kids!

More Details: Parkdale Parent's Primary Prevention Program

Operating out of the Parkdale Queen West Community Health Centre, the Parkdale Parent’s Primary Prevention Program (5Ps) provides parenting, nutrition, resource and informational support to pregnant women and families with children 0-6 years living in the Parkdale – High Park – Bloor/Dufferin neighbourhoods.

Services are offered to families living on low or no income, newcomer families, homeless or under-housed parents, lone-parent families, parents facing mental health and/or substance use challenges, as well as youths who are parenting. Last year they helped 205 families plan for a healthy birth through their prenatal program and supported 175 families with 320 children through various postnatal programs and infant feeding programs. Their support services help to reduce the stressors on new families and encourage the healthy development of children in our community.

When Everything Changed

It was February 2018, and I was running super late for an important pitch meeting for a big account. I was stressed and anxious about closing the deal. I parked in the underground lot and hightailed it up the stairs to the street for the short walk to work. As I looked up, I saw a disheveled man with an oversized jacket standing at the corner.

Troop Started a Year Ago – Is it Working?

It was a year ago this month that I started Troop. The idea was simple. I believed that if more neighbours knew about the needs in their area then they would be more willing to help. I believed (and still do!) that more people want to help
