Eastside Baby Corner (EBC) will use their grant to support the general operating
expenses of their unique and critical program. The EBC distributes donated and
purchased baby items, including beds, strollers, car seats and clothing, to local
service providers as no cost. The food banks, school districts, social services
agencies and community centers redistribute the items to low-income clients.

The EBC is the largest provider of its kind in King County and has helped launch
similar organizations, including Westside Baby in White Center that also received a
third-quarter grant from the Foundation.

“Eastside Baby Corner is a critical resource for over 160 service provider partners
within King County, many located on the Eastside,” said Phyllis Campbell,
president/CEO of the Foundation.

The giving strategies of the Foundation are based on its deep understanding of local
programs and issues as well as its vision for addressing King County’s most pressing
needs through targeted, philanthropic investments. These strategic investments are
made utilizing the Foundation’s Healthy Community framework, which focuses on the
seven core elements of a healthy community:

1) Meets the basic needs of its residents
2) Promotes health and wellness
3) Creates quality education and learning opportunities for all ages
4) Ensures a vibrant and diversified economy
5) Provides broad access to arts and culture
6) Fosters strong and connected neighborhoods and communities
7) Protects and stewards its natural environment
