Ted Talk: Baby Bureau: Recycle, Reuse, Re-give the Love
Since collecting the first stack of donated baby clothing in a spare bedroom in 2010, Fran Wasserman has been the guiding force behind The Baby Bureau. A non-profit 501(c)3 organization, The Baby Bureau provides gently used and new baby clothing for underserved babies in Bucks and Montgomery Counties. Fran and her volunteers work with local hospitals, social service providers and charitable organizations that work directly with new moms in need. Through her leadership and vision, Fran has expanded the outreach of The Baby Bureau by partnering locally with businesses and other community organizations. The Baby Bureau has dressed over 1,700 Babies and counting!
Fran earned a B.A. in Human Services from Chestnut Hill College. She is the recipient of the St. Marie Eugenie Milleret Award and the 2016 Partnership Youth Services Award from a local foundation. She lives in Bucks County with her husband, Mark, and two little rescue dogs, Oliver and Linus.
