The Baby Box Project:
Open Door Family Medical Centers delivers 450 babies a year. That's almost 40 new babies born each month. We know that our new parents often lack essential "baby basics" and the Baby Box initiative is a response to this problem. The actual box becomes a bassinet, and we add baby essentials, as well as coupons for Health and Wellness classes, prenatal and post-partum classes, and prenatal support with our Patient Advocates.
Please host a Baby Essential Drive: We can use your help to collect:
- Sleep sacks (non-swaddling) or Layette gowns, newborn or size small
- Infant Thermometer or Infant Health Kit
- Bilingual Baby Book
- Diapers size 1
- Diaper Rash Cream
- Infant Toy
- Outfits, Onesies, Sleep & Play: newborn or 3 months
We need about 40 of each item, each month. Please consider hosting a drive at your organization, office, faith-based organization, school or just donate to help a new baby have a better start.
Individual donations are appreciated and can be taken to any Open Door health center during all business hours. We would love for groups or organizations to consider adopting a month! For drives or larger donations our collection space is in Ossining and delivers would be really appreciated! Please contact Alicia Ward at 914-502-1468 or email email@example.com.
If you are interested, we host baby box assembly days at our Ossining and Port chester locations. Ossining is typically the first Monday of each month from 9:30am - until finished or 12:00pm and Port Chester is the second Monday of each month from 12:30pm - until finished or 3:00pm. please contact Alicia Ward.
