CELEBRATE NATIONAL ADOPTION MONTH: Donate New or Gently-Used Baby Items or Give a Gift to our Basics for Babies Donation Fund!
Our Pregnancy & Parenting Services experienced an increase in individuals seeking assistance during the past months of September and October so far. The program staff is quite happy to be able to serve more women who are seeking assistance from the program, but with any increase in demand, the staff is also concerned about the ability to serve those needing assistance with the current supply of resources on hand. Please help us provide the basics needed for expectant mothers or those with newborns or children under 1 years of age. We are calling on our dedicated and generous supporters as well as the community at large to help us serve the increased number of women seeking our help by donating much needed baby toiletry items and clothing. Donations needed including: baby wipes, baby formula, burp cloths, bottles (all sizes/types), bottle liners, toys, booties & socks, diaper bags, changing pads, newborn baby clothing (newborn – 6 months & 12 months – 24 months) for baby girl or boy, diapers (size newborn, 3 and 4), baby lotion, baby shampoo, baby powder, and pacifiers. Donations may be dropped off at our Pregnancy & Parenting Services location at 9461 LBJ Freeway, Suite 110, Dallas, TX 75243. Don’t have time to shop or don’t have any items to donate? You can still make a difference by giving a gift to our Basics for Babies Donation Fund online at www.ccdallas.org/basics.
