Buy a Baby Bundle at the Farmers Market

• Bookmarks: 29 • Comments: 3

June 4, 2022

Among the tables selling fresh veggies, artisan breads and cheeses at Saturday’s TaSH farmers market was one displaying diapers, rash cream and rectal thermometers, among other infant-related items. They weren’t for sale in the traditional sense, but if “customers” threw in a dollar, it would secure two diapers; $5 might buy a rectal thermometer. Ultimately, the donations would add up to a “baby bundle” for distribution to one of the families whose newborn was delivered through the Sleepy Hollow Open Door Family Medical Center. The facility sees some 400 births each year.

Organizing this drive and packaging the baby bundles is the Kids Club of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow, the nonprofit that in turn supports a range of local charities that provide food, clothing, shelter and academic assistance to hundreds of low-income families in the community. All told, Kids Club aids some 20 programs, among them Open Door.
