Once again, FOX8 (WGHP) and Anchor Katie Nordeen are motivating people in the Triad viewing area to help moms and newborns who face major challenges as a result of poverty. The second annual Community Baby Shower is raising needed support and awareness about the importance of early child development, especially at birth.

The 2nd Annual FOX8 Community Baby Shower runs through Mother’s Day, May 14. Viewers are encouraged to donate new and gently used items to give vulnerable moms and new babies the essentials they need for a strong start in life. Donations are accepted at all A Cleaner World and Colfax Furniture and Mattresses locations.

All donations are encouraged, but the greatest needs are diapers and formula for newborns.

The baby supplies will be donated to Family Services (Winston-Salem) and Family Services of the Piedmont (Greensboro) to help moms and babies who have the greatest need.
