Why Second Stork?

Each year, thousands of new parents across the Twin Cities are stretched to bring their baby home from the hospital with even the most basic supplies such as diapers, cribs, clothing, receiving blankets and other essential items.

Founded in 2009, Second Stork is a Minnesota nonprofit that fulfills this real, immediate need by providing those critical items free of charge with no strings attached. Second Stork is not religious or political in its mission or operations, and works in ways to always respect the dignity of people in need.

To do so, Second Stork relies solely on the expert judgment and expertise of hospital staff. In 2014, Second Stork engaged over 1000 volunteers to help over 700 newborns.
