HFUW Showers New and Expecting Parents at Our Third Annual Community Baby Shower!

Blog CBS Recap

Heart of Florida United Way’s third annual Community Baby Shower, presented by AdventHealth for Women, was recently held to celebrate new and expecting parents in need of a little support. As they say, it takes a village!  

This year’s Community Baby Shower took place on Wednesday, June 14, 2023, where donors, sponsors, and volunteers joined together to support Central Florida’s new and expecting parents to help them give their babies a healthy start.     

Upon their arrival, these soon-to-be parents enjoyed a delicious dinner, followed by a welcome from HFUW President and CEO Jeff Hayward to kick off this year’s Community Baby Shower. Then, Heather Collins, RN and Birth Experience Coordinator with AdventHealth, shared information about prenatal care and creating a birth plan. 

The parents then enjoyed a series of activities that resulted in them collecting must-have items for their bundles of joy.
