The East Bay Coast Guard Spouses Club will assemble and arrange the delivery of a Layette basket for any Active Duty (or Reserve) member, in the Greater San Francisco East Bay Area, whose pay grade is E-5 and below and expecting a new baby.  Our baskets contains things a new “Little Coastie” might need such as a hand made quilt, diapers, onesies, sleepers, bath and care products, towels, hat, socks, bibs, as well as an outfit and toy.

We raise funds to pay for these welcome baskets by an Annual Yard Sale, bake sales, and our office Plate Lunches.  Funds raised in these endeavors enable us to give these layette Baskets, free, to those who qualify.

The Layette application can be download here to nominate a qualifying family.  The form can be mailed to our P.O. Box or can be emailed to Michele Langford at
