The San Pedro Baby2Baby Pantry held their first distribution on Friday, April 24th, handing out 60 packages to pregnant women and families with newborn babies. The handing over of items took place by Caribeña Street from 9AM until midday. Several women, who had been previously identified, gratefully accepted a package with items such as pampers, baby clothing, milk formula, Cereal-Rice/Honey and even prenatal vitamins among others. Main organizers of the project, Conchita Ayuso and Dayrin Almendarez were very happy to have been able to garner enough support from the community to help those in most need.
The distribution is intended to be weekly and for next week, 40 packages have already been prepared to be delivered. These new packages will include items for babies 2-years-old and above, and as the pantry receives additional donations, organizers are hoping to be able to cater for more children.
