Recycling baby things in Seattle
Originally published on Thu September 20, 2012 8:35 am
WestSide Baby is a nonprofit organization in Seattle that collects used car seats, cribs, toys and other items for children and distributes them for free to South King County families in need.
Donations are inspected, organized and then used to fill wish lists of food and clothing banks and service care providers, such as public health nurses and social workers.
The group stages creative events such as "Stuff the Bus" that encourages folks to fill a bus with diapers for its Diaper Bank program. And "Pack the Goal" that asks people to bring children's sleepwear to a soccer game.
Jill Moe met WestSide Baby executive director Nancy Woodland in a mother's group 11 years ago.
