Cribs for Kids, a national organization, has distributed more than 325,000 safe sleep environments to families who otherwise couldn’t afford them. Now available in Putnam County, free Graco Pack ‘n Plays are at the Help Me Grow office in Ottawa.
The Cribs for Kids program is a service offered to ensure every baby has a safe sleeping environment. Help Me Grow wants to ensure families are educated on safe sleep in hopes of reducing SIDS. Families that receive a free Pack ‘n Play receive information and brochures about safe sleep as well as a fitted sheet for the bassinet and a Halo SleepSack wearable blanket to replace loose blankets in the crib that can hamper breathing.
To find out more about the program and eligibility requirements call the Putnam County Help Me Grow office at 419-523-6059.
