ACCESS TO DIAPERS IS A PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE
Even before the pandemic, 1 in 3 families experienced diaper need. In 2021, diaper prices increased 12%, and, now, more families than ever before struggle to afford this crucial necessity.
Join us as we come together again this year for United Way’s 2022 Community Baby Shower in support of 150 new and expectant families throughout our community! The need has never been greater and we need your help to reach more families than ever before.
We can’t do it without you – you can help fund diapers and other early childhood necessities for the newest members of our community. Together, we’ll empower families across Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties.
In addition to a gift distribution, the celebration will also include a series of online resources connecting new parents to local maternal and early childhood resources through our community partners. Please stay tuned for more information.
SPONSOR THE SHOWER
Your sponsorship of this event ensures we can reach as many families as possible while also offering exclusive opportunities for visibility and networking.
ABOUT THE COMMUNITY BABY SHOWER
Parenthood can be overwhelming – especially for the first time, not to mention during a pandemic. Whether its nutrition, developmental milestones, or safe sleep, new parents have so much to learn on top of everything they already have to navigate in today’s world. What’s worse, much of the information can appear contradictory. That’s where our community—supportive friends, family, local organizations and caring neighbors— comes in.
Heart of Florida United Way’s Community Baby Shower aims to provide expectant parents with essential supplies and resources to support their baby’s healthy development and learning. This year’s baby showers will include both a gift distribution and a series of resources to connect parents with local early childhood resources and information.
