St Kilda Mums helps mothers in need, powered by Google Apps for Work

For all the amazing things mums do, they deserve much more than just one day to recognise their greatness. As Sunday approaches, Google Australia is celebrating an organisation that makes Mother’s Day an everyday affair.

St Kilda Mums provides new and pre-loved baby goods to mothers in need. What began as a living room operation seven years ago has grown to four warehouses and more than 1,000 volunteers accepting and distributing baby gear to thousands of families.

So what’s their secret superpower for supporting thousands of mums across Melbourne? Technology. Products like Google Forms and Drive on mobile devices and desktops allows St Kilda Mums to organise incoming donations and better coordinate logistics across the network of staff, social workers and volunteers. The requests are received instantly in the warehouse, matched with the donated stock and dispatched to the family in need.

We are proud to play a small role in enabling St Kilda Mums through Google Apps for Work. We applaud the staff at St Kilda Mums, volunteers and all the mothers out there who keep the world turning with their love and power.

And to all working mums, you’re my heroes! Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Google Australia.
