A hop, skip, and jump away from the Renton Highlands, is the town of Issaquah. Us at Windermere enjoying giving back to our communities, and Issaquah is home to an amazing organization, called the Eastside Baby Corner.
Founded in 1990, EBC’s Karen Ridlon housed a growing concern for the “large numbers of babies… that began life without adequate food, clothing, beds or safety equipment.” As a local pediatric nurse practitioner, she saw this first hand. Her commitment grew outside of the hospital she worked in, and so the Eastside Baby Corner began.
The Eastside Baby Corner holds many titles: diaper bank, clothing bank, food source, and stewards of good, to name a few. While they called the Eastside Baby Corner, they serve across King County, from the foothills of the Cascades, and from south of Renton into south Snohomish County.
Last year and this year, we at Windermere Mercer Island will be volunteering them organize, clean, and assist in anything they require. They provide the basics to over 500 children every week, and to do that, they need a ton of person-power.
