You're invited 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 139 children, 127 families and 5 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—there is an endless list of things infants and toddlers need. 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 our wish list, select and purchase the items you want to donate and they’ll be delivered directly to us. 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.
