On Saturday, June 13, 2020, The African American Breastfeeding Network (AABN) and the Office of Early Childhood Initiatives (OECI) hosted the first annual Well Mommy & Baby Care Package Initiative Drive-Up at Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church, 2207 N. 2nd Street.

More than 250 families received packages of essential goods and educational supplies. Items were purchased by AABN through funding from Bader Philanthropies, Inc., and donated by local partners.

“Our communities are all being impacted by COVID-19, and we wanted to let families who recently welcomed a baby, or who are preparing for their baby to arrive, to know we are thinking of them,” said African American Breastfeeding Network Inc. Executive Director Dalvery Blackwell.
