A Better Start for Babies Launches Its Third Annual Drive

Our Social Action Committee is launching its third annual drive of our unique program that assembles bags of much-needed items for new moms and their infants cared for at ChesPenn, a federally qualified health care clinic in Chester. In 2022 we were able to double our first year's donations to create 73 bags, which provided supplies for about half the newborns and their mothers who came to the clinic. This year we hope to create 150 bags or more, so every mother and child can get one. 

The A Better Start for Babies project, created by our committee, is a response to the great need of so many mothers cared for by ChesPenn. Many have no resources, often no family to support them. The list of items was developed with input from the staff and pediatricians at ChesPenn, who see the needs every day. Each bag has a monetary value of approximately $100.

The list of items requested this year, including things like diapers, thermometers, creams, bottles, clothing and more, can be seen below and downloaded HERE.
