Community Baby Shower

June 1, 2021 @ 8:00 am June 12, 2021 @ 5:00 pm UTC-5

Parenthood can be overwhelming, from best practices for nutrition to developmental milestones and safe sleep, new parents have a lot to learn.

That’s where you can help.

The Community Baby Shower connects new and expectant parents experiencing economic hardship with maternal and early childhood education and resources, and helps to relieve some of the financial burden a baby can bring. Hosted by Women United, this inaugural celebration aims to help more than 50 families get a stronger start.
