- Every year in Chautauqua County 10 babies die in their first year of life.
- Every month 8 babies are born without any or the proper guidance and nutritional prenatal care.
- Every week 2 babies are born under a healthy weight.
These are a few of the reasons that UWAYSCC is making the difference in our County by holding a Community Baby Shower. In an effort to collect essential baby items that will help at-risk newborns get the start they deserve in life.
Host a “Baby Shower” item drive with friends or co-workers, or just donate items or money towards the purchase of supplies. Showers can be hosted between April 1st and April 30th.
United Way will pick up items or is available for dropped off items @ 413 North Main Street in Jamestown. Call Jill @ 483-1561 or e-mail Jkaczar@uwayscc.org to get started!
