Bum and Belly Drive Wrap Up

We ran the Bum and Belly Drive through last November and December, so it might seem like this wrap up post is long overdue.  Well, kind of.  But believe it or not, we JUST had the last set of donations sent off to The Diaper Drive this past Tuesday.  So now, it’s time to let you all know how it went.

Through all of our partners, we were able to collect a very good amount of donations this year.  We held a sorting party on December 19th, and we were SO THANKFUL to all the kind women who showed up to help sort through everything.  We had fun, too!

Ultimately, the donations went to 360 Communities, Everyday Miracles, the local chapter of the Cotton Babies Share the Love Program, and The Diaper Drive.  Through the process of collection donations and advertising our drive, we always have other organizations reach out to us, and we do our very best to accommodate them.  In the case of the Share the Love Program and 360 Communities, we were completely unaware of them until they reached out to us.  Both serve families in our immediate area, and we hope o be able to work with them more in the future.

With that, we want to thank all of the families who donated items, the women who came to sort, and of course, our partners who helped up collect the donations.  Your support makes this possible!  So enjoy the pictures, and we look forward to our next drive!

Warmly,

Veronica and Brittany

Opening BabyLove in September of 2011 has allowed me to build a space where all families can come to get good information in a caring, welcoming environment. I have found that not only do I love teaching more than ever, but I also really love running a business. Hopefully my passion for every aspect of BabyLove shines through.
I live in Richfield with my husband, and I am a mother of a two great children. When I can steal a few free moments, I love to go on adventures with my family, cook, garden, thrift, can, and craft.
