In Kind had quite the start to 2020. We have been building relationships with other local organizations who are already working hard to support families in need. We began partnerships with the wonderful women of the Mother and Child Education Center, Baby Blues Connection, and the Raphael House of Portland. We also had our second deliveries to the Sherwood Family Resource Center, and the Virginia Garcia’s Women’s Clinic. In an effort to help us further support the Sherwood SHARE Center, we applied for a grant through the Community Enhancement Program. Wish us luck!
Our gift boxes gained a new item this month. We started adding wipes to our boxes, which were generously donated to us by Happy Little Camper. Their wipes are made with 100% natural cotton and organic aloe. We also added two new styles of swaddle blanket to our shop. In addition to the black hearts, we now have alphabet, and black triangles. Our swaddle blankets are made of 100% organic cotton muslin.
January has also been a month of preparation for our fundraiser. On February 1 we are having our first fundraising event. Several local businesses donated prizes to us, which we will be using as giveaways during the event. We are so grateful to have such wonderful support from the community. We hope you’ll go to our Facebook page and join in on the fun!
