2013 Baby Basics Walking Challenge is being held to support an all volunteer program which provides diapers and kindness to babies from low income working families on a regular basis.
The walk will be held at the wooded picturesque trail and boardwalk at the North Collier Regional Park.
Delicious brunch, entertainment and camaraderie is the theme of the day. The goal is to raise enough money to support 315 babies currently being served. Baby Basics Walking Challenge is in partnership with the Collier County Parks and Recreation.
Baby Basics of Collier County is a 100% volunteer organization where the focus is on maximizing the potential of children under three years old. While providing free diapers, our goals are to also help build community and break down the sense of isolation felt by many hard working families. We recently celebrated having provided 1 million diapers to working low income families. Criteria for the program: one parent working; child under three; living in Collier County or Bonita; not receiving federal or state cash assistance; must meet financial criteria. (185% of poverty level).
