Today’s 6 Community Baby Shower

Hey Boise, here is another chance to give back!  Michelle Edmonds from Channel 6 news let us know about their Community Baby Shower and we are excited to help!

Here is some information about it from Michelle:

I started [this] while pregnant with my second child.  The quick story is I saw a real need to help young moms/families make sure they got a good start on parenting.  I believe the way to do this is through education.  So I hooked up with local non-profit organizations that provide incentive-based education programs to help families.  The parents go to classes (through the non-profits), their doctors appointments, reading time at the library,etc. and get a card signed every time they complete an assignment.  Those signatures add up to points that they can redeem for needed baby goods through the organizations.  It’s truly amazing to see how lives big and small are being changed by these programs.

We would love to gather as many “incentive” items as possible for the non-profits.  Their most needed items are diapers and wipes, but really anything for a baby goes.  Their only request for this drive is that the items be new.  (These programs never get new gear and so it is extra special for the women to get an incentive item with a tag on it!)

Other ideas: Baby Shampoo, Oil, Powder, Formula, Bottles, etc…

You can drop off items by Tuesday (July 27th) to a few of the same locations we used for the garage sale.

    Can you get the schedule of times they will be at local Albertson stores. I have been gathering items for this very event. It would be more convenient for me to take my items there. Thanks

    Barbara,
    You can drop off items from 6am-10:30pm on Wednesday the 28th at ANY Treasure Valley Albertsons. They will be broadcasting live from all around the valley all day long.

    That’s so awesome you’ve been gathering items for this!! So sweet of you!

    Are cloth diapers an acceptable option?
