WestSide Baby suffered a small electrical fire on April 9 in its central collection and donation facility in White Center. A nonprofit that collects and distributes equipment, toys, clothes and other essentials for area babies and kids in need, WestSide Baby lost power in the building after the fire and was left unable to serve 350 local children each week. 

The organization is in the process of moving its entire operation to a warehouse across the street, where it has been storing diapers and hoped to relocate this summer. To cover the cost of moving and consolidating its office and warehouse, WestSide Baby is requesting donations to help with the following:
