Does your baby gear need a new home? Denver resident, Jayme Ritchie, founded Weecycle with a friend, Sunny Heydorn, to serve Denver area parents are in desperate need of essential baby gear.
When Jayme’s daughter was born, she knew that she wanted to move on from her profession as a lawyer to raise her daughter. After volunteering with several Denver organizations, it came to her attention that there was a need for an organization to match gently used gear with families in need. Also being an advocate for the environment, Jayme thought this was the perfect way for her to blend her skills with a community service…and Weecycle was born!
Weecycle has about a dozen collection sites in the Denver area. They collect items such as carseats, stroller and pack-n-plays. Weecycle collaborates with 14 organizations such at the Florence Crittenton High School. A caseworker, who is already familiar with the family, will request items from Weecycle. Then Jayme will process the orders and deliver items. Weecycle operates on donations from the community. Their annual fundraiser, Blues, Brews and BBQ is coming up April 25th.
