There is nothing better than getting away from our desk and meeting one of our "good people" on their home turf. Our quick trip to Seattle was a chance to meet Jeannie Jaybush from Baby Corner. Despite working with her for years we had never actually met. We were not disappointed. Jeannie and her associate Liz could not have been more welcoming, and seeing the endless rows of baby supplies–clothing, diapers, toys, baby equipment and more confirmed for us what an amazing resource this tiny organization is for needy families in Seattle. While there, not only did Jeannie share story after story about the people they help, but a visit by one of the local public health nurses, coming to pick up some diapers and other baby equipment, confirmed what a valuable role Baby Corner plays in the community.
The shoes in this picture were part of more than 500 boxes of beautiful kids’ sneakers which Jeannie was able to retrieve from a local store that went out of business and were left by the side of the building. The landlord gave Jeannie a few hours to get them before they went into a dumpster.
Lots of very stylish little feet are sporting these high end sneakers today!
