Host a Baby Shower

AHEART's Mega Baby Shower at The Embassy in 2014

AHEART's Mega Baby Shower at The Embassy in 2014

Baby Showers are the foundation of AHEART. because this is how we collect donated items to stock the Special Heart Boutique and Diaper Bank. At the baby showers, individuals, organizations, churches, and anyone else participating will learn why AHEART exists, how they can help, as well have an opportunity to play fun games and win prizes.  

What is an AHEART Baby Shower?


These unique baby showers serve a dual purpose. Everyone brings an unwrapped infant gift to (YOU) the Hostess, who collects the items and donates them to AHEART. All donated items will be taken to families in similar situations.

We also will give a presentation to bring attention to the situations that are affecting infants in New Jersey. We will advise your guests on the current statistics and sad but true stories of infants in crisis. We will discuss a variety of ways they can make a difference and we'll encourage them to get involved by volunteering and learning more about agencies like AHEART and CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates).
