2016 Community Give Back: Baby Supplies for Switchpoint

I am finally blogging about this! It is a few weeks later than I had originally planned but I am excited to finally have it organized. Last year I did a community give back and loved it so much! I want it to be an annual thing. Maybe eventually I will get big enough we can do it semi-annually. Last year I collected donations for the Washington County Children's Justice Center. You can read all about how that give back turned out here and watch the video here. It turned out pretty well for my first year.

This year I have decided to collect baby items for Switchpoint. Switchpoint is our local homeless shelter. They believe in giving a "hand up" not a "hand out". Everyone who stays there is assigned a caseworker and the caseworker helps get the people back on track. Their motto is "It Takes All of Us". That includes us! So let's help them out by donating some needed baby items. I will post a video on YouTube at the end of the donation drive so that you can all see the generosity of our community.

So how can you help?

Below is a list of baby items that Switchpoint needs. Donations of any of these items would be greatly appreciated!
  • Baby formula and powder
  • Baby wipes
  • Diaper rash cream
  • Diapers
  • Baby shampoo
  • Strollers, Bouncers, Playpens, etc. 
**If you would prefer to donate money instead you are welcome to! I will go out and purchase some of these items to donate with the money. You can send me the money via PayPal by using my e-mail Please state that you are a family member or friend so I can avoid paying fees.**
