Check out this wonderful feature on Stork & Co and its founder, Meena Nutbeam!
“Armed with a $5,000 grant and several hundred dollars in donations, Story and Company distributed 500 boxes to families and organizations in 2016. This year Nutbeam expects that number to double.
Although the program doesn’t have any income requirements, moms-to-be must complete a 25-minute, online education program, which covers prenatal care, safe sleep, and more. Boxes are stuffed with diapers, breast pads, onesies, and information about daycare and other community resources.”
