Become a Cribs for Kids Partner
October is Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Awareness Month, National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, and National Safe Sleep Awareness Month. You can do your part to prevent SIDS and infant mortality and to promote safe sleep by becoming a Cribs for Kids Partner.
Cribs for Kids' mission is to prevent infant deaths occurring due to accidental suffocation, asphyxia, or undetermined causes during sleep by educating parents and caregivers on the importance of practicing safe sleep for their babies and by providing Graco® Pack ‘n Play® portable cribs to families who, otherwise, cannot afford a safe place for their babies to sleep.
Cribs for Kids Partners, of which there are more than 600 organizations nationally, receive free and discounted safe sleep educational materials (brochures, evaluation tools, and grant writing resources) and safe sleep products including the Graco® Pack ‘n Play®, portable crib sheet imprinted with a safe sleep message, Halo SleepSack, and Philips Soothie pacifier to distribute to families.
