Help Give a Newborn a Good Start in Life!
Arthurdale Heritage is helping to collect donations for a Baby Shower to be held October 15 at the Kingwood Extension Office. Each year Starting Points Family Resource Center helps growing families by giving them a basket of needed baby items plus resource materials.
During the shower, family members go to mini-workshops on issues that deal with family health, baby safety, abuse prevention, childcare, and other topics that may improve the children’s chances of growing up in a safe and happy environment.
Through funds from UniCare, a Medicare medical insurance program, Starting Points buys big-ticket items like pack-n-play beds, strollers, and car seats for door prizes.
Drop off donations at Arthurdale Heritage during office hours or call Martha White at Starting Points (329-1965) to leave them at their office.
