Fresh Start Baby Pantry
The Salvation Army's Fresh Start Baby Pantry program is designed to promote healthy and financially stable households by providing supplemental baby supplies to families with children ages birth to 5yr. When visiting the pantry, parents/gaurdians will meet with Salvation Army staff and volunteers to discuss their specific needs. During this conversation, staff and volunteers may find other ways that The Salvation Army can assist the family and also pray with them. The family must provde proof of income for the household before being approved for the pantry.
Diapers for sizes Newborn-5 are needed for the pantry, along with diaper wipes. The pantry runs primarily on diaper/wipe donations from the community. However, a finanical gift can be designated to the pantry and are always welcome!
If you would like more info on this program, please call our office (231-796-5597) or stop in and ask for Rebecca Hixenbaugh.
We are excited about the growth of our Fresh Start Baby Pantry since March 2016. So far, we have helped 70 families and 100 children! The Pantry has been a huge blessing to those who it has helped. Thank you for your support!
