Community Baby Shower
Because of growing concern around COVID-19, and following the guidelines issued by Governor Baker’s office, we have made the decision to postpone our annual Community Baby Shower, which was scheduled to take place on April 29th.
As the situation progresses and we learn more, we will provide updates about the rescheduled event. In the meantime, there are still things you can do to help new and expecting parents:
- Support a parent in need For $100 you can sponsor a Baby Basics Box, which includes diapers and wipes and all of the essentials a new baby needs.
- If you know of a family in need that is about to welcome a new baby, please direct them to contact the United Way 2-1-1 service by dialing 211 on their phone or visiting the 2-1-1 website here.
Thank you so much for helping families in need in our community. We look forward to seeing you at the rescheduled Community Baby Shower.
About Community Baby Shower
Parenthood can be overwhelming for anyone. Whether they are studying nutrition, developmental milestones, or safe sleep, new parents have a lot to learn. What’s worse, much of the information can appear contradictory. That’s where our community—supportive friends, family, and caring neighbors— comes in.
The Community Baby Shower connects new and expectant parents experiencing economic hardship with maternal and early childhood education and resources. It also provides access to gifts, food, and friendship. Hosted by Women United, this annual celebration will help more than 300 families this year get a stronger start.
