BNY Mellon’s Preston Came presented a check for $1000 to Jean Ann Lynch President of Baby Basics. BNY Mellon is one of the sponsors for the Annual Fashion Show which was held at Dillard’s on November 11. This is the third year in which BNY Mellon has generously sponsored this event.

Last year the Fashion Show was attended by over 160 women who were treated to a delicious brunch and a fabulous fashion parade. Dillard’s also provides a 10% discount on all store merchandise and then gave 10% of all the shopping proceeds back to Baby Basics. We are most grateful to our generous sponsors.



Poor Moms’ Anguish Over Diaper Costs

6C8419596-g-130728-cvr-diapers-3p.blocks_desktop_smallNBC News Health published and article addressing everything we have been saying for 21 years about the Baby Basics program.  You may have seen this article but if not please read it and send it to everyone you know. We had the antidotal information and they just justified it in a study. The study was done by Yale and the National Diaper Network which we have been working with. It certainly speaks to the issues we see at our distributions. Thank you so much for your support of our program.

As a Baby Basics volunteer, I feel that I play a small part in helping parents who are working hard to bring up happy, healthy babies. Not having to buy expensive diapers allows parents to provide food and other necessities to ensure happy, healthy families.  Meeting with these families and witnessing their gratitude is a special perk of being a volunteer.Selma Flieder, volunteer

I have been a Baby Basics volunteer/site manager for the past 7 years.  I love it because we can give encouragement and help to ensure happy babies through friendship to moms and dads.  We give all of our families a gracious hand-up while they are trying to do their very best.Trish Kelly, board member

Baby Basics is a very special nonprofit that provides diapers and caring for low income families. Diapers are a basic necessity and are very expensive. This organization relieves these families of some of their financial burdens. By volunteering, I have the opportunity to meet these families and their children, providing one-on-one contact and observing how appreciative they are.Sue Reynen, board member

I was thrilled to have served as Honorary Chairman of the Baby Basics Biking and Walking Challenge event presented by Morgan Stanley Smith Barney at North Collier Regional Park on February 12, 2010. As a law enforcement officer and a parent, I strongly believe in the good work being done in our community by Baby Basics of Collier County.Sheriff Kevin J. Rambosk

Just as we were about to have our last child, life seemed to be going great.  Then my husband's company closed and we lost our house.  Baby Basics was there for me with more than just diapers.  We were a family used to giving help - not asking for it.  Thank you for helping make our life a little easier.A Program Participant
