Baby Basics Thanks BNY Mellon for Their Support!
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
NBC 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.
