We have a food pantry inside the Parent Education Center. We carry a variety of baby and toddler snacks.
An outside food panty, called Paige's Blessing Box, is also located outside the Parent Education Center that is filled daily. Please take what you need and donate to the box.
We are a federally approved 501(c) non-profit community-based organization in California, founded by parents. Our mission is focused on helping parents access FREE resources and education. We are a FREE baby box distribution center for babies 0 - 6 months. .
We offer FREE gently used maternity and baby clothing up to size 2T. We couldn't accomplish our goals without clothing donations. We have a brand new washer and dryer onsite to launder all donations. Please drop clothing or food donations off @ 3803 Union Avenue - Thurs-Sat - 9am-5pm.
Without the generous support of Kari Anderson, Founder of Robert Grimm Family Foundation, the Parent Education Center would not be possible! Since April 2017, Kari and her foundation, have been an instrumental catalyst in helping the Sleepy Baby Box Foundation achieve their goal of opening a Parent Education Center in downtown, Bakersfield.
Every baby needs a hand-made blanket made with love. Project Linus provides every baby with a beautiful baby blanket stitched with a prayer.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of parents and babies in our community. A $20 donation will provide a baby with diapers, diaper rash cream, 2 pairs PJs, bottle, thermometer, pacifier plushy, and a blanket.
