Proceeds from the event -

Action for Child Care is a non profit organization committed to securing healthy and safe environments for underprivileged children. We partner with human service organizations to provide low income families with young children a safety kit that consists of a baby gate, carbon monoxide detector, smoke alarm, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, electrical outlet covers, cupboard safety latches, and educational materials on home safety guidelines and recommendations. We also Partner with Cribs for Kids which is a safe sleep initiative to help spread the word about safe sleep practices. We know families struggle to provide a safe sleep area for their infants, so give them the tools by donating a Cribette®️for infants under 6 months.

We believe every child deserves to thrive in a healthy and safe environment.
