LET'S GET STARTED
OUR CREATORS' STORY
Jessica, a journalist living in Scarsdale, has connected donor and recipient communities in the past. She has been collecting clothing, furniture and medical equipment from friends and neighbors for redistribution to local charities. She has often thought how great it would be to have a single entity that tracked which local organizations were looking for specific items.
Her daughter Helen, 9, started baking for Bake Back America after the coronavirus outbreak. Bake Back America helped Jessica realize the goal of establishing a wishlist clearinghouse for local organizations that sought in-kind donations of children's goods, clothing, and household items to make donations more seamless.
