*April 10: WestSide Baby experienced a small electrical fire in an outside meter that has caused us to lose power.  We are awaiting landlord-directed repairs and must remain closed until those repairs are made. We are hopeful, our landlord will address this quickly but we expect to be closed at least a week at our White Center Donation and Volunteer Center.  Our administrative office and our Central Branch at 23rd and Jackson are both open for full operations! We’ll post updates on our website and/or Facebook.  Thank you to everyone for your concern and please know we are making every effort to be up and running very soon as children are counting on us.*
