United Way of Buffalo & Erie County has officially kicked off the 9th annual Community Baby Shower, designed to support new moms and their babies.

The Community Baby Shower begins today and will continue through May 10th.

Donations can also be dropped off at United Way headquarters at 742 Delaware Ave.,  Oishei Children’s Hospital at 118 Ellicott Street on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, as well as during a live drive on April 19th  at the Wegmans locations on Alberta Drive in Amherst and McKinley Drive in South Buffalo.

The Baby Shower was created as a way to give moms and their babies living in financial hardship a stronger, healthier start in life. Each year more than 5,000 babies are born into poverty and are at higher risk of health issues due to a lack of prenatal care.
