HCRS supports new parents through 'Welcome Baby Bag' donation

Springfield Area Parent Child Center’s Celeste Marquise holds a Welcome Baby Bag while HCRS Case Manager, Angela Smith, hands her a $500 donation.

This money will go toward providing items for the bags which contain a baby book, spoon and toothbrush; a donated handmade blanket, baby hat, and stuffed toy; a tool for checking if items are a choking-hazard; a bottle of made-in-Vermont lotion; and a folder of local resources and supportive child development information.

The SAPCC has handed out over 100 free Welcome Baby Bags so far this year throughout Southern Windsor and Northern Windham counties. Parents or guardians of babies under one year of age are encouraged to call SAPCC at (802) 886-5242 or email if they would like a bag!
