Local Giving

Many of you have asked us if we support the local community via charitable giving.  Bellies & Babies is committed to serving the community with our focus on families and children in need. Here are examples of who and what we donate to:

  • Local winter coat drive for Alexandria elementary schools sponsored by Health and Human Services Department
  • Several local Alexandria pre-schools for their scholarship fund for families in-need
  • Fundraiser for children’s literacy programs
  • Shoe drive for the children of Afghanistan
  • Clothing and toy drive for the orphans of earthquake in Haiti
  • Donation to local homeless shelter pregnant resident
  • Clothing donation to local teacher who took in three new foster children

Consigned clothes that are not sold by the end of the consignment period have been donated to United Community Ministries (UCM). UCM is an Alexandria-based non-profit that assists families and individuals to improve the quality of their lives in a manner that builds their self-reliance, providing transitional housing for families in need and other family support programs.
