Baby Basics

Posted on: March 19th, 2012 by

The Baby Basics program, led locally by church members Jennifery Haggerty and Alicia Stedman, distributes free diapers to children of the working poor in their community. Baby Basics is based on the belief that early intervention with infants is one of the best ways to prevent later failure to thrive. By giving diapers and kindness, we hope to maximize the potential development of these children. We also provide these hard working families who are struggling to make ends meet, but have incomes too high for government help, with a safety net from welfare and a support network for the opportunity to succeed. 100% of the revenue generated by donations and grants is applied to the purchase of diapers, unless requested by the donor to use it for administrative costs. Members of the congregation volunteer as drivers to pick up and deliver diapers to the distribution center in South Boston.
