Local teenager opens donation center for new parents, infant care

HARTSHORNE, Okla. — A 14-year-old girl in Pittsburg has opened a local center where new parents can come pick up whatever supplies they need for their newborn.

Paisley Winslow got the idea for Paisley’s Precious Babies after noticing a need from new parents and young families.

“There’s a lot of people that need help, and I just felt like giving back,” Winslow explained to FOX23.

She started with an empty closet, and began asking the public for donations. Before long, the closet was filled to the brim with babies’ clothing, formula, diapers, bottles and other crucial supplies that new parents need for their newborns.

“It’s all free. They don’t have to pay for nothing,” Winslow said.

Local parents, like Brittany Stephens, see Paisley’s Precious Babies as a lifesaver for young families.

“We spend like $300 on formula a month,” Stephens told FOX23. She elaborated that keeping up with the cost of raising a family can be a struggle for new parents, especially in the middle of a pandemic.

“Everybody’s getting in and out of work,” she said.

Stephen’s visited Paisley’s Precious Babies for its grand opening Sunday to receive some much needed supplies for her newborn.

“I’m just truly grateful,” Stephens said. “It’s just really cool that she cares that much for people she doesn’t even know.”
