Yesterday, we were excited to have the WIC van and team join us for our September Parent Group Connection. Families came early and were able to sign up for WIC services, as well as receive goody bags from WIC and Beaufort County First Steps that included $20 gift cards, notepads, storybooks, and more. We also served dinner for all the families. WIC provided an overview of its services in a brief presentation that followed dinner.
BCFS recently received a grant that allows us to partner with WIC in Beaufort County through April 2023. The goal is to promote and increase WIC enrollment in Beaufort County.
Our PASOs Community Health Workers and PAT Parent Educator will take goody bags and encourage WIC enrollment for families they visit. In addition, we will be collaborating with Born to Read, who visits new mothers at the hospital to deliver goody bags and information. We’re looking forward to a continued successful campaign with all our partners!
