(Canton, Ohio) – Are you expecting? Are you a new mom? Join us at a baby shower held in your honor! (And CONGRATULATIONS!)
Join us on May 8th at the Ken Weber Community Campus in Downtown Canton between 10 am and 12 pm for a community baby shower. Expecting mothers and mothers of children under the age of one are invited to attend this touchless, socially distanced event- complete with walk-through and drive-up options.
The Grab, Go, Grow Event
Attendees will receive prepackaged bags filled with books, bibs, diapers, coupons, and more, as well as literature and information from local agencies with resources available for new moms. Those in attendance will be asked to fill out an information card and entered into a giveaway for several high-value items, including a crib, highchairs, car seats, salon packages, and more. Additionally, the Stark County Sheriff’s Office will be on-site to answer any questions.
“It has been an honor being amongst so many wonderful community partners and to witness the support and dedication that the Stark County community has to its citizens,” remarked Mary Martell, the Stark County Community Action Pathways HUB Director. “Stark County is rich with service providers, and this event has brought so many of those agencies together with the one goal of offering resources and support to the pregnant and newly delivered moms and babies of our community. We’re here to serve the community and want to see true, meaningful change in people’s lives.”
