Time for Service


Today I am taking a break from my regular food-related posts to let you know about something just as good - service! I have joined a committee called, "Service Soapbox." And we are hosting our first event - A baby shower!

The March of Dimes has created a Teddy Bear Den Program (TBD) that is designed to encourage or motivate low income women to get prenatal care and practice healthy behaviors during pregnancy, as well as take good care of their babies after pregnancy. The TBD accomplishes this by offering women on the program incentives, such as diapers, wipes, new baby clothes and a variety of other baby care products.

In honor of The Teddy Bear Den, "Service Soapbox" is throwing a Baby Shower! Guests who attend are asked to bring items to help stock the Den! Please look over this list and see what you can donate!

Teddy Bear Den Wish List
(These items should be new or handmade in order to be used as appropriate incentives for women in the program. The items below are listed in order of greatest need.)
  • Diapers and Wipes (Sizes 1-4 are always in highest demand)
  • Baby Hygiene Items: Shampoo, Baby Wash, Lotion, and Diaper Rash Cream
  • Baby Clothes (0-12 month sizes)
  • Coats, Jackets, Winter Hats, Gloves and Mittens
  • Socks, Hats, Shoes, and Sleepers
  • Baby Care Items: Combs, Brushes, Diaper Bags, Bottles and Nail Clippers
  • Soft Baby Carriers or Backpacks
  • Blankets (any size or material) and Crib-size Bedding
  • Cash Donations are always welcome!

And you don't have to live in Utah to be
apart of the fun!

Anyone can join in to support the efforts! Sign up HERE and participate in our "Virtual Baby Shower!" If you are an etsy shop owner, a children's retailer or a friend with a big heart and you want to send a gift for the event please jump on over, sign up and join in! Anyone who donates from out of town will be entered into our drawing for a chance to win some amazing prizes!

This sounds like a great idea. Not only getting to do service, but meeting other Utah food bloggers is always a treat.
