Kids need "stuff"
August 05, 2017
Mary said yes when asked to take in her two young nieces because she knew they needed a loving adult in their lives. But her paycheck couldn't stretch as far as her heart...finding money for diapers, shoes, clothes, formula and car seats nearly broke Mary. That's when the Head Start teacher stepped in. She put in an order with EBC to get new car seats, diapers, Big Bundles of clothing, books and toys for each of the girls. A week later, the teacher picked up the goods at the EBC Hub and delivered them to Mary. "She is incredibly grateful, and can't imagine how she could keep caring for these children without the support of EBC." EBC is like a big hug, protecting parents and other caregivers and their children with the vital supplies kids need for healthy development.
12,000 children every year get immediate, tangible support from EBC, at no cost to the family or to the 191 programs in the EBC network of agency partners. One gift to EBC is leveraged with donated goods and smart purchasing to help kids through schools, human service agencies and hospitals. And EBC is not only a place that helps kids, but a place where you can help kids. Volunteers young and old give their time (2,700 hours each month), and the community donates new and used goods so EBC can give out 72,000 items, valued at nearly $5 million to children in need.
