As the co-founders, one of the things we are loving most about Reno Moms Blog is discovering new groups, resources and services that are supporting moms and families right here in northern Nevada.
We are thrilled to team up with these like-minded partners in the community to bring you even more ways to get informed, get involved and get connected with other mamas right where we live. Introducing: Reno Moms Blog’s Community Partners!
Toast Carson Tahoe is a field guide and online companion toasting and celebrating women in the Tahoe, Gardnerville, Minden, Carson and Reno/Sparks areas, delivered daily by the Carson Tahoe Health Women’s Health Institute. The hospital’s Women & Children’s center has recently received prestigious international recognition as Nevada’s first and only Baby-Friendly® birth facility. This designation is awarded only to facilities that adhere to top breastfeeding standards set by Baby-Friendly USA, Inc, a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
The semiannual Just Between Friends Reno Sale is quickly becoming a local staple for everything from Halloween costumes and jogging stroller to gently used kids clothing and more. Mark your calendar for our area’s largest children’s and maternity consignment event, coming up October 11-13.
As parents, we invest so much money in the items our children need, and many of them are in great shape long after the kids outgrow all those clothes, toys, equipment and furniture. This resale event is all about letting other families purchase these items at greatly reduced prices, and earn some cash back at the same time. We love the JBF philosopy: “We are bargain lovers, of course, but beyond that, we believe in being good stewards of our resources—taking care of each other and reaching out a hand to those who need it.”
On top of getting a great deal on the things you need, volunteering and shopping at this event is an easy way to help others. That’s because the JBF Reno sale also partners with local charities to reach even MORE people within our community by donating items and goods from each sale to organizations helping women, children and families in northern Nevada.
