Give to a good cause: Baby2Baby!

We recently became a drop-off location for Baby2Baby, a Los Angeles organization whose mission is to supply Los Angeles families in need with essential baby gear and clothing for their children up to age 12. They provide new and gently used items to over 50 non-profit organizations, assisting over 50,000 children each year.  While it's easy to remember that there are children who are beyond less-fortunate outside of the United States, it can difficult to fully believe that many reside only a few blocks away from us.  Baby2Baby gives these families the chance to raise their children to be fed, clothed, and happy, and it is through their donators that they are able to complete this mission.  That's where you come in!  Thanks to our supplies drive to benefit people affected by the tornadoes that tore through the southern states a year ago, it became quite obvious that we have some seriously generous customers who went all out to clean out their storage spaces to find new and gently-used items that they no longer needed.  And now we're asking you on behalf of Baby2Baby to consider donating again.  Here is a list of what they take that you can drop off at Landis' Labyrinth (or any other drop-off point):

Very Gently Used
Clothing (ages 0-12 years)
Blankets/ Bedding/ Towels
Infant Tubs
Back & Front Carriers
Bouncy seats

NEW items:

There are also some items that they cannot accept, which include, STAINED clothing, USED Stuffed Animals, USED Bottles/Nipples/Teethers, USED Breast Pumps, OPENED Formula, Bumpers, and Safety Gates with Hardware.

We have our donation bin inside our shop at 144 N. Larchmont Blvd., so please consider donating!  Also, please visit their website,  , to find out more information about their organization.
