The Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey (PCC) was the recipient of the Petoskey-based company’s nutrition education products and monetary donation to support the expansion of their program office to include a new space for displaying baby gear and clothing.
PCC has plans in the works for a new store as a part of “Earn While You Learn,” a program developed for young mothers and fathers. The program offers over 100 classes focused on educating expecting families from labor and delivery, breastfeeding, newborn care, baby language, parenting skills and much more. The center also offers classes specially designed for fathers and on educating new families on life skills.
“Everyone here at Pregnancy Care Center loves what they do and each client is welcomed with that love,” says Judy Buss, executive director of PCC. “We seem to be busting at the seams with blessings and exciting new programs! Fresh Baby has become a part of this, gifting PCC with new baby products, including Baby Food Making Kits, Cookbooks, Spoons, Bowls, Breast Milk Storage Trays, and much more.”
For more than 13 years, Fresh Baby has helped parents and caregivers foster their children's healthy eating habits and proactively respond to the childhood obesity epidemic that plagues our nation. Cheryl Tallman, founder and CEO donated more than $1,500 of the company’s products and $1,000 to support PCC’s store kick-off.
“The Pregnancy Care Center provides a nurturing and educational environment for new parents to prepare a healthy and loving home for their new arrival. Our community is lucky to have PCC and we are delighted that we could make our own contribution their success," Tallman said.
Buss said PCC will be incorporating these products into its "Earn While You Learn" classes, where clients receive points called Baby Bucks for each class they take.
Buss states the store will be filled with cribs, car seats, clothes, diapers and the new Fresh Baby items to be purchased using the earned Baby Bucks.
