About us

A Baby Box is a gift from the community to any new-born in the Queenstown Lakes District, no strings attached.

The Queenstown Lakes Baby Box Charitable Trust was established in 2016 and is run entirely by volunteers. We gave out our first Baby Box in late 2018 and since then, we have delivered over 500 boxes to new families.

Our Mission is to GIVE a Baby Box to all newborns in the Queenstown Lakes District.  Our vision is to CONNECT our people, our place and the services that are available with all families to support a happy, healthy and connected community.

Our organisation is run by a group of community-minded volunteers.  We are grateful for support from our community to help us fill the Baby Boxes and welcome the gift of time from volunteers, knitting, quilting.
