Comfort Bags Baby Shower

  • Basil's on Market 312 North Patterson Boulevard Dayton, OH, 45402 United States (map)

Join us for brunch and a "Baby Shower" at Basil's!

The Comfort Bags project, a 2017 UpDayton Summit winner, asks you to step up and show Dayton children transitioning into foster care that our city has their back. The Comfort Bags Baby Shower is our first event! We'll be collecting items for infants transitioning into foster care and discussing other ways to get involved.

Bring your donation (items or money) to brunch at Basil's on Sunday, September 17th. Our partner, Agape for Youth, compiles these items into Comfort Bags that are given to the child and their new foster family in the first hours of this difficult and often sudden transition. No need to gift wrap your items. They will be re-packed into custom Comfort Bags based on the child and foster family's needs.

Steve Geib, Executive Director and Founder of Agape for Youth will be attending the Baby Shower, explaining how important these Comfort Bags are to the youth who receive them. If you are not able to bring a donation, we still hope you'll join us for brunch to learn more about the project! Brunch is $17.99/person for the buffet and there are vegitarian options available.

Here is a list of the items we're looking for. Grab a few items or get them all and assemble a fully stocked Comfort Bag!
