Olde Naples Self Storage South, a locally owned facility and part of Florida's Storage Solutions self-storage management and consulting group, is acting as a distribution center for Baby Basics, a non-profit organization serving needy families in the Naples area. Distributions occur twice a month.
Founded seven years ago and run by Jean Ann Lynch, Baby Basics collects diaper donations and distributes them to needy parents. Currently, parents of 285 babies are enrolled in the program. Last year, 340 familes participated. To be in the program, families not only must meet poverty requirements but also must be employed and not receiving public assistance.
The self-storage facility on Goodlette-Frank Road joins churches, a YMCA and other non-profit organizations' buildings as distribution centers.
