THE 3rd ANNUAL COMMUNITY BABY SHOWER STARTS MARCH 3!
Each year in Erie County, thousands of babies are born into poverty. Each week in Erie County, 8 infants are born to women receiving late or no prenatal care. 21 babies are born pre-term, 15 are low birth weight, and 1 will die before age one.
You can make a difference through the third annual United Way Community Baby Shower, a community-wide effort to collect essential baby items that will help at-risk mothers to give their newborns a stronger start, giving them the supplies and support needed for a healthy beginning. Host a "Baby Shower" item drive with friends or co-workers, or donate money towards the purchase of supplies. Showers can be hosted between March 3rd and April 8th. Donated items will once again support new moms and babies served by three extraordinary United Way partners:
