Sadly, the Shower of Love will be postponed until further notice. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to hold this event as we have in the past.
Still want to donate? You can donate to any of our 7 non-profit partners: Birthright St. Charles, Crisis Nursery, Nurses for Newborns, Our Lady’s Inn, Sts. Joachim & Ann Care Serivce, or Youth In Need. For a list of desired donations, visit our website at www.showeroflovestc.org. You can also shop our Amazon Wishlist or Target Registry and donations will be shipped directly to the Shower of Love office and distributed from there.
For the past 13 years, the CCRB and local non-profit partners have joined 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.
Hundreds of volunteers and community partners have come together annually to “shower” babies with love. Community partners host collection drives during April and the Shower culminates with a grocery store event at the end of April. Volunteers hand out flyers at local stores and ask shoppers to purchase items to donate. 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 $1,045,000 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.
