GOLDEN, Colo., May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Financially struggling families in Denver are often faced to choose between diapers or groceries to make ends meet. Thanks to the generous donations and support from the Denver Health Foundation, local businesses like The Boppy Company and the Denver community, some of Denver's tiniest and most vulnerable citizens will get a healthy start right from the day they are born.
Every single baby born at Denver Health goes home with a "Warm Welcome Bag" filled to the brim with everything a baby needs for a great start. In addition to the Warm Welcome Bags, babies and families in serious need can get car seats, strollers, cribs and other baby items to help them out.
The Newborns in Need program of the Denver Health Foundation collects thousands of new baby items from the community during the special Day of Giving: BAEBAE Day held on May 7 this year. Thousands of cash donations are contributed online and items are dropped off throughout the day at Denver Health to fill the welcome bags.
Since 2012, The Boppy Company and its employees have supported the Newborns in Need program through sponsorships, donations and volunteering their time at BAEBAE Day by helping to collect and sort the thousands of items donated throughout the day.
"The BAEBAE event gives our littlest community members an incredibly helpful start with a welcome bag filled with everything they need. The Boppy Company is honored to be supporting such an important local program that closely aligns with our mission of starting newborns and moms off on the right foot. We are deeply moved to see our community come together for this event and experience the overwhelming passion and generosity Denver citizens have to help each other," says Nancy Bartley, CEO of The Boppy Company.
