Carolina BEBES members have been busy this Fall. Their main focus was the first ever BEBES Diaper Drive which, with cooperation from the SON, SOM, SOWO, SPH and WHIC (NC Women’s Hospital), was were able to collect and donate 2,655 diapers, 264 wipes, and 371 feminine hygiene products benefitting the NC Diaper Bank! Members then helped deliver the donations and spent an afternoon helping the Diaper Bank package wipes and create diaper pack labels. Everyone felt that it was an incredibly rewarding experience learning about and helping a local charity that is really making a difference in our community.
BEBES members have also attended a tour of the Birth and Wellness Center, a presentation about racial inequalities in breastfeeding support, and a presentation about side-car bassinets at the NC Women’s Hospital. New this Fall, BEBES has also created a public page on Facebook – give “Carolina BEBES” a like in order to keep up to date on their events and activities.
