OKEECHOBEE — Okeechobee Healthy Start Coalition will have a “Change for Babies” campaign. The campaign will consist of local businesses and organizations who will have the “Change for Babies” containers at their front counters. The change collected will be benefiting Okeechobee’s pregnant women, infants and children up to three years old.
The campaign began on Friday, March 29, and will run until May 31. Tin Fish, Zippy’s Wings and Los Cocos Mexican Restaurant of Okeechobee have each kindly donated gift certificates to be awarded to the top three businesses and organizations who collect the most change, or individuals who donate to help facilitate the “Change for Babies” campaign in the community.
