Community Baby Shower – Sunday, May 19, 2024

If you want to see impact, join us at our annual Community Baby Shower where we host up to 100 moms, dads and families each year to make sure their baby gets everything they need. The event is hosted at Premier Companies Audi dealership in Hyannis.

In the spirit of a traditional baby shower, the Community Baby Shower gives low-income families a stronger start to parenthood by providing access to maternal and early childhood resources and many essentials to take home, such as diapers, wipes, clothing and car seats installed by officers from the Barnstable Police Department, helping out at the event.

Here’s a link to learn more and see photos from the 2023 event.
