Rutherford County's Community Baby Shower
United Way and the Rutherford County Health Department join together each year for the Community Baby Shower, where we ask fellow residents of Rutherford County to collect and donate essential baby items for expectant and new mothers. The Murfreesboro Water Resources Department is proud to serve as a collection site within the community for those wanting to donate to this special cause.
The collection items will occur January 8, 2020 through February 5, 2019.
The items will be sorted and baby bags will be assembled on February 7, 2020, at the Community Baby Shower Sort-a-Thon.
This year, the United Way has a goal of 500 baby bags to be distributed to families in Rutherford and Cannon counties. Focusing on one of the United Way’s priority community issues, healthy beginnings, the bags contain essential baby supplies for a healthy start in life.
Items to be collected include: diapers, onesies, baby wipes, bottles, and blankets
(new items only for newborn - 6 months old).
"Stuff The Bus" School Supply Drive
Each summer, The Murfreesboro Water Resources Department partners with United Way to collect school supplies for at-risk students around the Rutherford County area. Murfreesboro residents, businesses, and City employees are urged to donate backpacks, Crayola crayons, color pencils, dry erase markers, glue sticks, scissors, and notebooks to help students start their school year off right!
For the 7th year, MWRD is participating as a donation site for those wanting to give. "Stuff The Bus" usually kicks-off at the beginning of summer in May and usually ends just in time for school at the end of July. Be on the look out for dates!
