Donate Baby Items! #DayofAction2018

Parenthood can be overwhelming and, for some parents, they struggle to provide the basic essentials to their children. United Way fights for the well-being of every parent and child. By hosting a Community Baby Shower, you can provide a strong and healthy start to children born into poverty. 

Host a collection drive or purchase brand new baby items as an individual and deliver items to United Way of Yellowstone County on June 21 as a part of United Way’s Day of Action* and provide essential baby items to families in need.
