Good News For Baby Basics
Baby Basics of Collier County would like to send a big thank you to all of our supporters! Recently we have been blessed with these generous gifts and grants allowing us to serve even more babies in need.
A big thank you to the National Diaper Bank network for facilitating the first shipment of free diapers from Kimberly-Clark. We received 1000 diapers which provided diapers to 22 babies for a month. That is a good start and we are hoping to receive more in the next quarter.
The supply was sent directly to Steve Stresen-Reuter of Precast by Design in Bonita. Steve is the generous man who helps us move all the diapers to our distribution areas twice a year. Thanks Steve. We are grateful to generosity of Huggies (a Kimberly-Clark brand) and K.I.D.S. Organization who delivered the diapers to us.
The following grant money will allow us to add 15 new babies to the program and create some very special social connection time at each distribution site. We will do a education program and a community building program with refreshments.
- $10,000 from Trinity by the Cove
- $10,000 from Naples United Church of Christ plus and additional $2,400 from NUCC from the Mother’s Day offering
- $1,000 from Sam’s Club
