Pop-Up Baby Pantry @ Bayshore Family Success Center
Aug 7 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
July’s Pop Up Baby Pantry has been rescheduled to Wednesday, July 1, 2020.

The need for diapers doesn’t have to be overwhelming!

On average babies need 6 diapers a day and newborns need more than double that. Not having diapers can lead to less frequent changes causing severe diaper rash, urinary tract and staph infections, and other health conditions.

Supporting Families

The Bayshore Family Success Center is excited to continue our monthly Pop-Up Baby Pantry. Inventory is based on community donations and includes diapers, wipes, rash cream/ointment, and formula. We have been fortunate to have a caring community continuously support us and we are currently well-stocked!

Our Pop-Up Baby Pantry is open the first Friday of every month. Please contact us at familysuccess@ymcanj.org to register by 7 p.m. on the Thursday before the next pop up. We will continue operating with a contact-less pickup in our parking lot.
