Baby Boutique at Family Health
Centers of San Diego

Family Health Centers of San Diego was founded by local activists in 1970. They offer health care to the community with a special commitment to uninsured and low income people. When they found that many of their patients receive prenatal care but did not attend post-natal appointments, they created the Baby Boutique. When new mothers attend appointments on infant care, health education and nutrition, they receive “Baby Bucks,” which may be used to purchase items in the Boutique. These items are provided entirely by donations from the community. In honor of Mother’s Day this month, we will collect items for newborns to age 18 months, including: Teething Toys, Rattles, Pacifiers, Car Seat Toys, Sippy Cups, Combs, Brushes, Manicure Sets, Nursing Pillows, Diaper Bags, Bathtubs, Strollers (especially Umbrella Strollers), Bouncers, Diapers, Wipes, Infant Toiletries (shampoo, lotion, wipes etc.). Bring your donations to the white barrel in the front office lobby of the Temple and we will deliver them to appreciative mothers through the Baby Boutique. For questions, please contact Mitzvah of the Month chair Jean Seager at (619) 435-8130.
