Healthy Start Wish List

'Tis the season for giving! 

This holiday season, the Healthy Start Coalition is collecting essential pregnancy and baby items for Sarasota families in need.

More families than ever are struggling to provide the basic necessities for their babies. Simple items that may seem inexpensive to some are unaffordable to others. And living without these basics can seriously dampen holiday cheer. You can help! Donate new or gently used Pregnancy and Baby Items to Healthy Start. Our Care Coordination Team will distribute them to families in need.
