Across the nation, 1 in 3 families struggle to provide an adequate supply of diapers and baby care necessities for their child. In St. Charles County, 2,800 children under the age of 6 live in poverty.
Shower of Love is a community effort to collect donated baby care basics, such as diapers, bottles, and pacifiers for non-profits serving families and babies in St. Charles. All donations are distributed to local families in need of baby items through our 10 non-profit partners.
By donating to Shower of Love, the community helps reduce child abuse and neglect while easing the stress on fragile families in their time of need.
100% of proceeds goes to babies in
St. Charles County.
