PANTS PARTY!

Eastside Baby Corner’s 4th Annual Pants Party!

Saturday, September 7th from 10am-1pm at EBC Hub – 1510 NW Maple Street in Issaquah.

Bring a donation of new or gently used pants for children, ages 0-12, and stay to enjoy a fun filled day of games, food and fun.  Visit the Eastside Fire & Rescue fire truck, have fun with bubbles, coloring, and fun activities!

Eastside Baby Corner’s “Pants Party” is a great to help local kids in need in our community get off to a great start this school year. The goal? To collect at least 3 pairs of pants for every school aged child we serve during the first 6-8 weeks of school.  That’s 2,500 pairs of pants! 

EBC helps children succeed in school by providing clothes, shoes, socks and school supplies.

Pants may also be dropped off at the following locations:

For more information, to volunteer or to sponsor, please contact Cori Benson at corib@babycorner.org, 425.865.0234, ext. 705.

Breakfast, Bags, & MOPPETS

Our MOPS breakfast this morning was a big hit!  Not only did people enjoy the breakfast, we were able to raise $387.50 to donate to the Harrington House!  One woman even wrote a $50 check.  🙂

Special thanks to those moms who donated their time today (and after Saturday’s mass) to speak, cook, socialize, serve, etc. for this event!  It was a success & was a lot of fun to have a time to catch up with MOPS mom’s outside of our regular meetings.  And one last thank you goes out to Denisse & Kari for undertaking this major event & pulling it off in stellar fashion.  You guys are amazing!!  We were asked to “do this more often” by one parishioner that attended the breakfast.

The event was not only a success for Harrington House, but it was a success as far as getting MOPS’ name out there to the parish.  We got ourselves 2 new MOPPET caregivers, 2 sub caregivers, & 1 that is mulling over the possibility of being  a MOPPETS caregiver!!  We also spoke to a few mom’s that may join our group next year.

The other thing that began today was the Activity bags in the Cry Room!  They were a hit (at least with my kids!).  Thanks goes out to Kari (great idea!!), Sandy, Stephanie, Katie & Mary for taking on this project.  The bags are great & are sure to become a staple at MQP for the kids!
