#Giving Tuesday Crib & Mattress Sets for Families
Update! We exceeded our goal, thanks to you! We raised $6,388 which is $538 over our goal of $5,850. We can purchase forty-two crib & mattress sets! This is quite an accomplishment for one day. We appreciate every penny we have received. You have made many families and babies happy today!
Help us purchase a crib and mattress set for 39 families in need — families like Elena, Zach, and their newborn Kiera. Surprised with a positive pregnancy test, Elena and Zach were not ready for parenting. Elena had just lost her job, and Zach was not planning on becoming a father. They didn’t know what to expect and were worried about the cost of caring for an infant. They both came to our parenting class and acquired parenting skills with other expecting parents; information on nutrition, infant brain development, labor and delivery, baby basics, first aid, budgeting, and much more!
After their classes, Elena and Zach received a new crib and mattress. Each year we purchase crib & mattress sets for 39 families in need, to help them safely care for their baby. A safe crib and bedding are essential for a new family. An infant can sleep as much as 14-17 hours a day, and the cost of this high price item is too much for many families. We purchase the mattress & crib set at Walmart for $150.
No amount is too small to donate. Your gift will make a difference.
