We are saying goodbye to WestSide Baby’s South Lake Union branch with a BOO at SLU event on Monday, October 31! As our lease ends this November due to planned redevelopment of the space, and as we reflect on the costs and benefits to operating a second physical location, we are excited to announce that we will be directing resources towards expanding our WestSide Baby footprint through mobile donation collection and item distribution services in 2023.
Monday, October 31 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Bring a box of diapers or other most-needed items and we’ll provide treats and fun – reserve an appointment today or just stop by in your costumes!
We’re going MOBILE in 2023!
In early 2023, WestSide Baby will launch our Mobile Donation Collection program at locations around Western King County! We deeply appreciate the generous support SLU & surrounding neighborhoods have provided as we have expanded distribution to over 175 social service programs in our community, serving over 30,000 children annually.
In service of our mission and vision, WestSide Baby is focused on providing basic need items to children furthest from access. We know that in doing so, transportation is a barrier for some of the partner agencies we work with. While we currently offer delivery to a few sites, increased mobile distribution services will allow us to be even more responsive to community needs and improve access to our services. This program expansion would not be possible without the generous support of the Boeing Employee Community Fund and their grant toward our new electric van!
We look forward to sharing more about Mobile Collection & Distribution that will better serve families and children in our community!
