Two Successful Events in a BIG Tent
On November 1st, in conjunction with the annual Coats for Kids distribution event presented by WDTN and Dayton’s CW, CSSMV’s Pregnancy & Parenting Support team offered some fall fun for parents with children under the age of one, including expectant parents.
Under an enormous, heated tent in Dayton’s McIntosh Park, the wildly successful Coats for Kids distribution was complemented by Baby’s First Community Birthday Party. This special event, sponsored by the Dayton & Montgomery County Infant Mortality Task Force, featured carnival games and prizes for children; goodie bags and community resources for new parents; door prizes; breakfast, lunch, and hot beverages.
The combined events attracted hundreds of area families and gave CSSMV’s staff an excellent opportunity for community outreach, while roughly 2,000 coats — as well as hats, gloves and scarves — were distributed to those in need.
This was the second year that CSSMV served as the host for the annual Coats for Kids distribution. Connecting this event with the agency’s pregnancy and parenting services was a natural fit!
