Kicking off this Mother’s Day, May 13, Bellevue Presbyterian Church, Sacred Heart Church, Kirkland Way Storage, and Peak Sports and Spine Physical Therapy are springing into action with Baby Basics and collecting diapers for low-income families.

Donations sites are the Bellevue Presbyterian Church at 1717 Bellevue Way NE, Bellevue; the Sacred Heart Church, 9460 NE 14th St. Bellevue; Peak Sports and Spine Physical Therapy, 12501 Bel-Red Road, Bellevue; and Kirkland Way Storage, 11200 Kirkland Way, Kirkland.

The gift of diapers is an ideal way to honor mothers and to show support for low-income working moms and dads on the Eastside.

Your donation will cover a little bottom and will make a significant difference to a mom and family. Diapers in sizes 5 and 6 are especially needed.

Since 2012 Baby Basics Bellevue has distributed over 240,000 diapers to low-income families on the Eastside.
