Community Baby Shower
So many families these days are struggling just to get by, and when you add the needs of a newborn to the mix, it creates a whole new set of demands and stresses. A Cleaner World is a family-owned, neighborhood dry cleaner that believes in the importance of family and helping both family and neighbors when a need arises. That's why we've teamed up with FOX8 to host the FOX8 Community Baby Shower.
To participate in the Community Baby Shower simply drop off new things like diapers, wipes, formula, and supplies or gently used things like baby clothes, toys, car seats, and cribs at any Triad area A Cleaner World now through February 21, 2016. Family Service of the Piedmont and Family Services of Forsyth County will collect and distribute the donated items to new mothers and babies in need throughout our community.
"Every child is a blessing," said Chris Edwards, President of A Cleaner World, "but a struggling economy means families are struggling. Statistics say that approximately 2.3 million infants and toddlers have at least one parent who works full-time, year-round, whose wages still can't pull the family above the poverty level. The simple act of donating a package of diapers or some clothing your child has outgrown can make such a difference. This is our chance to help those families in need."
