SNBC & the Sunset Family Resource Center are proud partners of THE BABY BOX CO. We distribute baby boxes to new and expectating parents from the Sunset Neighborhood Beacon Center located at 3925 Noriega Street. 

As of July 2017, we have distributed 121 Baby Boxes to new and expecting families!

What Are Baby Boxes?

(via the Baby Box Co.) Inspired by the maternity packages that the Finnish government sends to all expectant mothers, Baby Boxes are new baby starter kits that double as safe sleep spaces for infants. Each Baby Box includes a custom mattress with fitted sheet so that it can be used as a bassinet. [Baby Boxes] have helped Finland achieve one of the world's lowest infant mortality rates, thus saving countless infant lives over the years.
