Partnership Provides Car Seats, Pack 'n Plays to Young Families

Published: Aug. 23, 2021

Young families with newborns and toddlers need many items. So Fremont Health Foundation and the Fremont Public Schools Sixpence program have formed a unique partnership to provide 30 car seats, Pack ’n Plays and diaper bags to families in need.

“A concern we were hearing was that many of the families didn’t have the appropriate car seat to get their bundle of joy home safely, as well as many of the necessary essentials needed for a newborn,” said Shawn Shanahan, executive director of Fremont Health Foundation. “Sixpence was a logical partner for this initiative, knowing the great work they have already been doing in the community.”
