Community Baby Shower


Virtual Baby Shower: Friday, May 6th
Gift Distribution: Saturday, May 7th  

Locations throughout Greater Boston, the North Shore, Merrimack Valley and Greater Attleboro   

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 1,000 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. This year, we’ll empower hundreds of families across Greater Boston, the North Shore, Merrimack Valley and Greater Attleboro.  

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.

About THE Community Baby ShowerS

Parenthood can be overwhelming – especially for the first time, not to mention during a pandemic. Whether it’s 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 neighborscomes in. 

Over the past decade, United Way’s Community Baby Shower has provided thousands of 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.  


Get Resources

Whether you’re a first-time parent or you have some experience already, you can find valuable resources to keep you and your family safe and healthy.
