Torrie created BabyCycle after her two children began to outgrow their clothes and baby gear. She wanted to donate all the items to a community organization capable of giving them directly to local children in need. Unable to identify such an organization, she created her own network of community-based providers through her work in the St. Petersburg Exchange Club and the Junior League of St. Petersburg.
Torrie’s mission for Babycycle—South Pinellas County’s only community diaper bank—is for no child to go without food, diapers, clothing or other necessities.
