mitzvahotmonthMitzvah of the Month for May
Baby Boutique

In May, we will collect new and gently used items for the Baby Boutique at Family Health Centers (FHC) of San Diego. Founded in 1970 by local activists, FHC offers 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, lactation support 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: Clothing, Baby Shoes, Bibs, Infant Toys, Rattles, Pacifiers, Bath Accessories, Diapers, Wipes, Diaper Bags, Nursing Covers, Strollers, Feeding Chairs, Kangaroos/Carriers, Potty Chairs, Bouncers, Car Seats (this item must be new, not used)

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 or donations of items too large for you to manage, please contact Mitzvah of the Month chair Bill Seager at (619) 435-8130.
