COMMUNITY CONNECTION SUPPORTING FAMILIES IN NEED
March 2022 | Vol.3 | Week 3
Hello Supporters! As most of you know, one of the biggest services we offer is accepting donated baby equipment that we take them apart, clean, research for recalls, and then give them back to families in need. By the time Spring rolls around, we're bursting at the seams. Our annual Spring Swap and Shop (though no one really shops...it's all free) is coming up! The Evangelical Bible Church has graciously offered to allow us to use their gym this year so that weather is not a factor for us. We have sooooooooo much stuff to give away! If you have any unused baby items lying around, now is the time to donate them to us so we have time to look them over. And if you know of anyone who needs baby equipment, now is the time to tell them to mark their calendars! We look forward to seeing you! Glenda J. Dunaway Executive Director
Last week, our Director, Glenda, had the privilege of accepting the grant check from the Dallas Community Foundation. Here is a picture of the grant recipients present. Great group of nonprofits in Dallas!
AMAZON SHOPPING? Also, a friendly reminder with Christmas shopping upon us...there’s another easy way for you to help! Simply access your Amazon account by shopping through Smile.Amazon.com when doing your normal purchasing. All your account information will stay the same, but Amazon agrees to put 0.5% of your purchase amount towards the charity of your choice. Just select Bambinos Or in the upper left hand corner to make us the charity of choice. It's that easy. Another great way to help us while shopping on Amazon is to just add a pack of diapers and/or wipes to any order and have it shipped to us! We appreciate any way that help is given. When we as the Bambinos board lists the people and things we're most thankful for this Thanksgiving season, you're on our list!
HELP SUPPORT BAMBINOS We are always in need of people who can pledge to send us a monthly gift that we can put toward our expenses. We call these wonderful people "Bambinos Builders." A pledge as little as $5 per month can still make a big difference.
