Each year during Child Safety Awareness Week (September 18-24) WestSide Baby, a local non-profit in the Greater Seattle Area, helps raise funding and donations for local families who cannot afford to purchase car seats, along with other items, for their children. Last year, WestSide Baby was happy to provide a number of families with small children with new car seats but sadly, were only able to fulfill 47% of the overall requests received.
When Bellevue Rare Coins team member, Rachelle, learned of WestSide Baby’s efforts, she presented the information to the Bellevue Rare Coins Foundation board, and they knew they had to help. A new non-profit, Bellevue Rare Coins Foundation, is devoted to positively impacting children’s lives in the Greater Seattle community through a variety of outlets and charities.
“As a mother myself, I couldn't imagine how it must feel to not be able to purchase items such as a car seat or diapers for my child. Fortunately, WestSide Baby exists and is providing these items for families in need. Bellevue Rare Coins Foundation couldn't help but notice this, and we wanted to contribute to the cause.
Bellevue Rare Coins is a family owned and operated business, we understand and appreciate family and care very much for our own employees as well as their families and we love to support our community.”
-Rachelle Garrott, Bellevue Rare Coins
The Bellevue Rare Coins Foundation is happy to announce the board and team members presented WestSide Baby with nine car seats to aide in their efforts towards keeping children safe with brand new car seats from SafetyFirst.
