The Baby Bureau is a 501 (c) 3 mon-profit organization that donates "Baby Bundles" of clothing to social service providers, local hospitals, shelters food banks, etc., that determine the need of the new mom and baby. Each "Baby Bundle" includes 30 seasonally appropriate outfits, a receiving blanket, onesies, sleepers, a hat, a bib, socks and shoes, They are in need of sizes 0-2T. They also include baby board books in the bundles because it is never too early to start reading to your baby. They consider the "Baby Bundle" as a gift for mom and the baby.

Cradles to Crayons - A child needs to be emotionally and physically prepared in order to succeed in school. Many children lack the tools they need to translate their knowledge and creativity into confidence and academic success. In fact, by age four, children living below the poverty line are already 18 months behind their peers. To help alleviate the effects of poverty on school readiness, the Ready for School initiative provides local children in low-income and homeless situations with the school supplies they need to be able to participate fully in class and do homework. Anchored by our annual Backpack-A-ThonŽ each year hundreds of volunteers, fill tens of thousands of backpacks with age-appropriate school supplies. The backpacks, along with KidPacks (containing clothing, shoes, and more), are then distributed to kids in need, giving them the tools and confidence they need to arrive at school ready, confident, and excited to learn. We are collecting school supplies including calculators, pens and pencils, markers, notebooks, etc.
