Learn More About Baby Basics
Please continue to visit this page for updates regarding the 2017 Baby Basics.
Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida loves to help children in our area who are in need. With almost 14 percent of babies being born in poverty, the local agencies in our Councils’ jurisdiction need help to provide the basics for these babies to get a healthy start in life. October is Baby Basics month and you can be part of this community service project too. We are encouraging individuals, families and troops to participate by collecting baby items for local agencies. We will be collecting baby formula (powder preferred), cereal, diapers, diaper wipes, bottles, baby lotion/baby oil/baby wash/shampoo and other baby care items that will be distributed to local agencies that are in need of the supplies Sorry, we CANNOT accept other donations such as clothing, furniture, toys, strollers or other equipment. You can place baby collection boxes in your local churches, schools, daycare centers, grocery stores, and get your entire community involved. Then take your donation to one of our pre-selected drop off sites between OCTOBER 1 – OCTOBER 31. Together, we can help new mothers go home with the things they need so their babies grow strong and healthy! Girls will receive a special Baby Basics patch.
