School Supplies, Winter Gear and Holiday Gifts for families in the Bronx

Baby Buggy's most recent donation to the Baby Buggy Family Resource Center at St. Anthony's Head Start in the Bronx included over 3,740 baby items and gear, which included the usual items ranging from diapers and strollers to car seats and bath tubs.  This donation also included adorable Halloween costumes so that the children enrolled in this program (and their siblings) would have beautiful costumes and be able to participate in Halloween festivities!  

This donation also included additional school supplies to ensure the children continue to have all the necessary supplies to be confident and successful in school.  We also supplied them with a range of winter gear to keep these little ones warm throughout the fall and winter.

Baby Buggy donations are distributed to client families enrolled in the Family Resource Center at St. Anthony's to meet their critical needs for baby items and gear.  Baby Buggy also distributes books, toys, bath products, etc. that can be distributed to families as incentives to encourage participation in various educational workshops addressing debt reduction/credit repair, career development, nutrition, safety, parenting, etc.  These incentives are also distributed when families reach their personal goals that have been set with the Family Workers at St. Anthony's.  These goals often include going back to school, obtaining employment, opening a checking/savings account, saving a specific amount of money, etc.

For the holidays, Baby Buggy is going to donate wrapped gifts of toys and books for the children at St. Anthony's and their siblings!  Baby Buggy wants to ensure the families enrolled in the Family Resource Center have all the baby items, gear, and winter clothing they need, as well as holiday gifts to bring some cheer into their lives during this holiday season.
