Assistance League® of Los Altos Baby Bundles program is embraced by Santa Clara County’s Valley Healthcare system. The Public Health Nurses (PHNs) at the Sunnyvale office of Valley Healthcare distribute our “Baby Bundles” (infant supply tote bags) to new mothers being counseled while the PHN assesses the newborn’s health and home environment. The totes are filled with clothing, diapers, handmade blankets, a developmental toy, infant/toddler books, and baby wipes. Assistance League of Los Altos also supplies baby equipment when requested, based on the PHN’s assessment of needs in the home.
Our membership is enthusiastic about this program. We organize work parties to fill the totes with baby supplies and quilting parties to sew baby blankets. Our membership is in regular contact with the PHNs. We have been invited to the offices of Valley Healthcare, and members came away with a renewed appreciation for the work being done by both the nurses and ourselves.
