13th ANNUAL COMMUNITY BABY SHOWER FOR BABIES OF BEND
BEGINS FEBRUARY 1 to MARCH 31, 2018
SPONSORED BY SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL OF BEND, OR (SI BEND)
Bend, OR, January 2018: Working to keep Central Oregon babies warm and clothed, Soroptimist International of Bend is calling on our community for donations of clothing and essential baby and toddler items. For the 13th year, making the babies warm and cuddly happens because of the generous community donations dropped into the SI Bend Community Baby Shower Baskets located, at businesses, around town, and by the various handcrafted items created by residents of area residential communities.
The 2018 SI Bend Community Baby Shower begins February 1 and runs through March 31, 2018. SI Bend is in partnership with the Deschutes County Department of Human Services who distributes the items to local families in need of clothing and basic baby care supplies. Last year’s collection was so significant that the Department of Human Services was able to share with other offices in the Tri-County area. This is truly spreading the warmth of the community to those who need it.
SI Bend is pleased to have the cooperation of local businesses which place a baby collection basket in their retail space for the general public to drop off donated items such as new or gently used baby clothing, diapers, unwrapped clothing, blankets, hygiene items, bottles and pacifiers. These baskets cannot accept large items such as a used car seat.
Business locations of the Baby Baskets are:
BJ's Quilt - 20225 Badger Rd, Bend 97702
Hopscotch Kids - 1303 NW Galveston, Bend 97701
Newport Market - 1121 NW Newport Ave, Bend, 97701 (Feb. only)
