CARE.COM AND CITRUS LANE BRING SUMMER FUN TO MOMS AND KIDS
WALTHAM, MA – June 24, 2014 – Care.com, the world’s largest online care destination for finding and managing family care, and Citrus Lane, a leading e-commerce destination for moms to discover the best products for babies and kids, have teamed up to surprise and delight moms and kids this summer through a new marketing relationship.
“Moms don’t have a lot of time but always want the best for their kids,” said Leslie Semegran, Vice President of Marketing, Care.com. “Citrus Lane makes it easy for moms by eliminating some of the guesswork when choosing the best products for their kids, bringing delight into their day. This is what makes this such a great marketing partnership. Care.com is all about being there for moms and families and this is a new way for us to connect with them.”
“We’re so excited to be able to partner with Care.com,” said Carrie Cronkey, Vice President of Merchandising for Citrus Lane. “We chose the items for the welcome boxes to meet the needs of a new mom. She has a lot on her mind, and in this case is searching for a caregiver, so we wanted to include special items that she can enjoy with her baby and treat herself a little.”
Citrus Lane customers receive monthly boxes with an assortment of kid-friendly products curated and selected for the age and stage of their child, and can shop from a wider selection of products online. Launching this month, a select group of Care.com members will receive a special Citrus Lane Welcome Box which includes a book, toy and other goodies.
