A non-profit in Beatrice is making sure mothers have the supplies they need during quarantines.

Willow Center has started delivering supply needs to mothers as necessities are harder to find in stores. When the coronavirus began, the center closed its doors but wanted to remain active, providing mothers with the tools and support they need during the quarantines. The bags include baby wipes, formula, and diapers. 

“If they’re expecting, they just want to stay home and stay safe,” says Katie Hanquist, Executive Director For Willow Center.  “So, we started gathering up supplies and started delivering them to our clients. We did a lot of posting on facebook and in our community just to say ‘hey we’re doing this if you need help.” 

Volunteers have helped get the bags to mothers in need around the town and the organization is still taking donations. For more information visit https://willowcenter.net/.
