Community Baby Shower with Newark Now

On April 9, 2011, 300 lower-income mothers and mothers-to-be received essential baby items including bedding, diapers, bottles, clothes, car seats, cribs and strollers from Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.).  The baby shower was organized with Newark Now, the charity founded by Newark mayor Cory A. Booker. 

K.I.D.S. will distribute about $500,000 in donated products to Newark residents this year, including items such as outerwear, underwear, shirts, socks, pants, dresses, skirts, sweaters, shoes, books, DVDs, toys and holiday gifts.  The items donated by K.I.D.S. are all brand new, arriving directly from manufacturers or major retailers.
