A program through the Armed Services YMCA Fort Bragg provides newborn essentials for Fort Bragg families E-5 and below.
FORT BRAGG, North Carolina — Baby Bundles, a no-cost program providing new military parents essential supplies such as diapers, onesies, wipes, clothing, toys, books, blankets, and more, has been a Fort Bragg staple for over 16 years. The program was previously operating at Womack Army Medical Center, providing surprise care items to new families, however some significant changes recently occurred with this program.
“Previously we could only serve new parents who actually gave birth at Womack due to the demand – however we have now expanded Baby Bundles to be open to any new military family, rank E5 and below, in order to better serve the entire Fort Bragg community,” says Carrie Benick, Community Relations Manager of the Armed Services YMCA Fort Bragg. Benick also shared one additional change to the program - any military family currently in their third trimester, rank E5 and below, are also eligible for the program.
”We know being a new parent is already chaotic and challenging, so now families can register and pick-up bundles before their due date to have the items on hand when they welcome their little one into the world,” said Benick.
The Baby Bundle program is supported by a number of donors who provide the items given to new parents including PNC, The Susan M. Tillis Foundation, Kiinde, Inc, Association of Bragg Spouses, The Bragg’N Barn Thrift Shop, and numerous individual donors.
Families interested in registering for the program should visit the Armed Services YMCA Fort Bragg website at https://www.asymca.org/fort-bragg-home and then click on the “My ASYMCA” tab.
