My sweetest memories are the days we brought our babies home from the hospital wrapped in a bunting made by my mother, buckled safely into a car seat given to me by coworkers and later tucked in for a nap in a cozy crib. But sadly, there are many parents in our community who do not have the means to provide the most essential items for their new babies. That is why I started Baby’s Bounty™ in the summer of 2008. Too many infants were leaving the hospital wrapped in a father’s shirt and put to sleep in bed with young siblings or in a drawer on the floor.
Every new baby deserves to be safe, warm and healthy. Baby’s Bounty™ distributes clean clothes, bottles, blankets, diapers and hygiene items to more than 50 babies in need each month and provides dozens of car seats, Pack ‘n Plays, bathtubs and other essential items to ensure that they thrive.
Through collaboration with over 125 social service agencies, we look forward to assisting more babies in need as they are identified through the referral process. Additionally, we hope to relieve some of the stress and despair the parents are experiencing and empower them to take better care of their new babies. Without these essential items the baby, and the mother’s self esteem, will suffer.
Please join us in our efforts to improve the lives of babies born into disadvantaged families. Think of Baby’s Bounty™ when your own babies outgrow their infant clothing and no longer need their baby gear. We’ll be sure to pass them along to the babies in our community who need it the most. Together we can provide “a good start for every baby”.
