Who can access the YPN We Care Shop?
YPN participants can access the We Care Shop Tuesdays from 11am-1pm and Wednesdays 1-3pm. The We Care Shop is run by YPN staff and volunteers who will assist parents with their shopping needs. In the shop, they will find baby care items, formula, diapers, clothing 0-5T, toys, games, books, and more. The incentive helps families to save their cash to help pay for things like rent, utilities, and transportation, to help provide for their families.
The We Care Shop is also home to the Eastern Iowa Diaper Bank, a partnership with Eastern Iowa Health Center, to eliminate diaper need in our community.
“We we’re able to meet other parents going through similar things by joining YPN group and the support is so helpful; without the We Care Shop, diapers and wipes alone would have been a huge financial burden. The kids love the toys, too.” ~Val & Jeremy, YPN Mom & Dad
