Supplies for mothers and babies needed in Union County, NJ
In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, the Union County Board of County Commissioners is partnering up with the non-profit, Moms Helping Moms Foundation to encourage residents to step up and donate to a worthy cause.
Diapers, formula, wipes, hygiene supplies, and other necessities for mothers with babies and toddlers can be dropped off in donation bins placed at six locations from Monday, Jan. 16 to Friday, Jan. 31.
“We know that there are families who are going through financial struggles. Anyone can fall on hard times, and the burden of making ends meet is especially difficult for families with babies and young children. We encourage everyone in the community to support our families in need,” said Union County Commissioner Chairman Sergio Granados.
Moms Helping Moms was launched in 2011, to ensure that every baby is provided with life’s basic necessities. The organization provides direct assistance to households with babies and children up to five years old.
