23ABC has partnered up with three local agencies who help take care of the most vulnerable babies and children of Kern County. The Bakersfield Pregnancy Center, The Jamison Children's Center and the Mission at Kern County are in need of supplies, and we need your help to fill their shelves.

- Baby Bottles
- Infant Diapers
- Baby Formula
- Infant Hats/Beanies
