Laura, one of our moms, shared this after her child aged out of the program:
"I would like to say 'Thank you' to all the caring, loving ladies at Baby Basics who provided diapers, wipes, and books to my daughter. Because of the help you provided, I was able to spoil her (just a little bit!), and with the money we saved, my husband and I were able to pay off a few small debts that we otherwise would have had to wait to pay off. We are a young working couple, and in this day and age it can be hard to make ends meet, even with two incomes. We had one less expense to worry about and it made all the difference. I am forever grateful!"
