Event description

Description

2020 marks the twenty-ninth year that the Detroit Club of the National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women's Clubs, Inc. (NANBPWC) will sponsor the region’s largest Community Baby Shower.

We are thrilled with our partnership with Henry Ford Hospital and for the seventh consecutive year, the shower will benefit Henry Ford Hospital's newborns. We invite you to participate in celebrating the birth of our community’s tiniest and most vulnerable citizens on Thursday, April 2, 2020, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

All donated items will be distributed to infants born/serviced at Henry Ford Hospital, whose families are in need as identified by the hospital’s Social Work and Maternal Child departments. You are encouraged to invite your friends, neighbors, organization members, etc. to join us in this effort.

Donated items must be new, and unwrapped. Needed newborn-sized items include: car seats (priority), portable cribs, umbrella strollers, snowsuits, diapers, sleepers, etc. The event includes a short program, baby fashion show and presentation of gifts; followed by delicious refreshments. Hope to see you there!
