2014 Community Baby Shower
On Your Side Newsroom
What: Today’s 6 and FOX9 (along with 94.9 the River, 107.1 K-HITS, 100.3 The X, and Variety Rock 105.1) are partnering with Blue Cross of Idaho, St. Alphonsus and Albertson’s to help Treasure Valley babies and families. For the 8th consecutive year, Journal Broadcast Group is holding a week long Community Baby Shower.
When: Wednesday June 25th.
We hope you will help by donating diapers and wipes, NEW clothing, and baby personal care products (creams, lotions etc.) and formula.
Donations may be purchased (or merely dropped off) at Albertsons locations from Ontario to Mountain Home and Twin Falls and at St. Alphonsus Maternity Centers in Boise and Nampa.
Four non-profit organizations will receive all the goods collected:
Family Advocates' BabySteps
Catholic Charities of Idaho in Nampa
Baby Haven at The Salvation Army in Caldwell
Marian Pritchett High School in Boise
All four groups are committed to helping moms and moms-to-be through incentive based education programs. The agencies educate women about how to make healthy, safe choices in pregnancy and parenting. In return for attending classes, doctors appointments, etc...the women are able to use the points they earn for goods (all the baby items we will collect).
With education and teamwork we can all make a difference in the lives of Treasure Valley families who really need the help and are willing to work for it - not just getting a hand out.
