A Baby's Closet of Associated Churches of Fort Wayne and Allen County is excited to be the beneficiary of a Community-Wide Baby Shower during the month of October. As Shelby Lynn, Promotions Director and Weekend DJ at STAR 88.3, prepares for the birth of her child she realizes a need to help other expectant families.
"Just like STAR 88.3, A Baby's Closet helps make Fort Wayne a better place to raise a family. I'm really blessed to have family and friends who are going to support me with baby showers - babies require a LOT of gear! All of us at STAR wanted to throw a Community-Wide Baby Shower to give back to A Baby's Closet of Associated Churches for the moms that don't have that support," explained Shelby Lynn.
Collection sites include all Peerless Cleaners and YMCA locations in Allen County. People are encouraged to drop off diapers, baby wipes, teething rings, baby wash, and baby powder. Larger items such as new car seats or new cribs are desperately needed and must be dropped off at 602 East Wayne Street.
The month long event will wrap up with a Celebration Day held on Saturday, October 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at DeBrand Fine Chocolates, 10105 Auburn Park Drive. Shelby Lynn of STAR 88.3 will be there to give a piece of fine chocolate to every person who brings a donated baby item.
A Baby's Closet helps low-income families and those experiencing hardships by giving them the opportunity to earn coupons which they can redeem in exchange for items that help them safely and adequately care for their children. The goal is to provide quality baby items while increasing the utilization of programs that promote optimal pregnancy and child health.
