Shower of Love Baby Care Drive begins in April 2020!
The CCRB and local non-profit partners join forces each April to collect donations of baby formula, diapers, wipes, and baby care basics for babies and families in St. Charles County. Donations are distributed to our non-profit partners serving moms, caregivers, and babies. Shower of Love helps reduce the risk of child neglect and abuse, while easing financial strain on parents.
Each year hundreds of volunteers and community partners come together to “shower” babies with love. Community partners host collection drives during April and the Shower culminates with a grocery store event on April 30. Volunteers hand out flyers at local stores and ask shoppers to purchase items to donate. In 2019, the community donated over $65,000 in items, cash, and gift cards!
All donations stay within the County, and 100% of donations go directly to families experiencing poverty, homelessness, or crisis.
With the generous support of our community, the Shower of Love has collected over $1,031,000 in baby items since 2006, supporting thousands of St. Charles County children and caregivers annually. The CCRB is proud to coordinate Shower of Love as part of a county-wide effort to prevent child abuse and neglect.
