Northern Rivers Invites You To A Virtual Baby Shower



You’re cordially invited to make a difference in the lives of some very special infants and toddlers! Our Early Head Start program serves more than 186 children, 146 families and 15 expecting mothers, all of whom struggle with poverty. That’s why we’re hosting a virtual baby shower all month, and we need your help.

Strollers, car seats, bedding, diapers and clothing—families of infants and toddlers have an endless list of things to buy. But when they’re faced with financial hardship, sometimes there’s just nothing left in the budget. By donating items from our Amazon Wish List any time between August 1 and 31, you’ll help ensure that these families can keep their children safe and secure.

Simply visit the site, select and purchase the items you want to donate and they’ll be delivered right to those in need. Or if you’re out shopping, simply purchase items from the list at any store and drop them off at our 60 Academy Road office in Albany or our 125 Bigelow Avenue location in Schenectady weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

A new baby is a cause for celebration. With your help, our Early Head Start families will be able to focus on that joy.
