A really cool local event needs some of your help.

MyStateline - The donations benefit Crusader Community Health, with the goal of bringing proper clothing and care items to babies in the Rockford area. People can donate anything from baby wipes, bottles, shampoo, and even children's books -- but there is an emphasis on disposable diapers, as Crusader says they're running low on them this year.

This is the eighth year that the Crusader Clinic has organized this drive and it couldn't be for a better cause.

Crusader Community Health helps out under-served patients in Winnebago County, including delivering about one-fourth of all babies born in the county.

They will be accepting donations for the shower through June 15th. If you'd like to make a donation you can drop them off at the following locations:

  • Gustafson's Furniture
  • Al Grace Appliance
  • Crusader Community Health

If you can't make it out to one of those places but have things to donate, reach out to us and we'll make sure it gets to where it needs to go.
