“It gives me great joy to see donations come in that enable us to fill the requests we get from families. At the same time, it is really hard when we do not have an item requested – often basics like socks, safety items, or shampoo. Saying no is tough. This is where you can help. With your donations, we are able to purchase our most needed items so we have everything children need most.”

–Diane R., WestSide Baby Volunteer
