Day of Action: Community Baby Shower

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 baby shower on June 21 or before as a part of United Way’s Day of Action* and provide essential baby items to families in need.
