After months of planning event details, organizing diaper donations, and sorting generous contributions of children’s clothing; MMP’s Baby Store was a huge success! Baby Store is an event that Missouri Mentoring Partnership holds twice a year that allows our young parents to shop in our office to spend the Baby Bucks they have earned. From spending time with their mentors, to attending parenting classes; each activity completed by our young parents is worth a certain amount of Baby Bucks. After their totals are formulated, our young parents are free to shop for diapers, wipes, children’s clothing, safety items, toys, hygiene products, children’s bedding, and much more.
On December 5th, all of MMP’s preparation paid off as we watched our clients walk out with over $817 in Baby Bucks worth of essential items for their children that they had earned by participating in our program. This amazing event would not have been possible without our dedicated staff, participants, mentors, and donors. Again, thank you to everyone who made this day possible!
