Since March of 2008, Baby Buggy has donated a total of 78,861 items to 69 families through the Baby Buggy Family Resource Center at St. Anthony’s Head Start in the Bronx! These families have been receiving quarterly donations of essential baby gear, clothing, books and toys and monthly donations of diapers to help keep their children safe and bring some cheer into their lives.
Baby Buggy just finished the fourth cycle of Credit Where Credit Is Due financial education workshops at St. Anthony’s – Baby Buggy had 20 families graduate from this fourth cycle. These financial education workshops help families develop a personal financial plan, reduce their debt, increase their savings and improve their credit. Many of the graduates have reported that they have been successful in reaching their financial goals as a result of attending this five-week workshop series.
Families enrolled in the Baby Buggy Family Resource Center at St. Anthony’s were excited to share the following feedback on how Baby Buggy has impacted their lives:
“I want to start by saying thank you very much!! Without Baby Buggy I’m not sure how I would have clothed my new baby! I have been going through some very hard times in my life right now and I was not sure how me and my children were going to make it! Baby buggy was like a gift sent from God! Not only did Baby Buggy help me by providing my family with clothes and toys for my unborn child & my daughter, but Baby Buggy even helped me by providing me with maternity clothes that I really needed.”
“If it wasn’t for the crib, clothing, stroller, and all the other necessities I needed for my newborn baby I wouldn’t know what to do. Baby Buggy’s donation was priceless. Thank you so very much. You were even able to give me clothing for my other children as well.”
“I am very grateful for all the donations I’ve received from Baby Buggy and I now know that my baby is ready to come into this world because she has a roof over her head, clothing, and diapers. Thank you very much.”
“I met most of the financial goals I set in the Credit Where Credit Is Due workshop. My biggest goal was to get myself and my children out the living situation that were in. I also got additional help for myself. This was very helpful in my life and for my children. “
