The African American Breastfeeding Network Inc. (AABN) hosted its second “Well Mommy & Baby Care Package Drive- Up,” on Saturday, August 8, 2020 at Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church, 2207 North 2nd Street. “Families are experiencing insurmountable stress due to COVID-19, and other situations. This event may lift some of the tension and stress families are feeling by providing essentials and familycentering items,” said AABN Executive Director Dalvery Blackwell.

After taking a brief survey families then selected from one of three care package options. Board Games and a $50 a local restaurant gift card is included in the Family Centering care package. Other care packages include Mommy Wellness and Baby Layette.
