About

Join the community for a day of support for new families and those with children 5 and younger. Families will be connected with resources and new baby supplies, sign up for a library card and get their first books, and learn about programs across the city that exist to make those early days just a little easier for caregivers.

Bilingual volunteers needed for this opportunity!
