Earlier this year, the Vanderburgh County Health Department debuted a new program called Pre to 3 to help combat the unusually high infant mortality rate our area (one of the highest in the WORLD). The program provides education and services to new and expectant mothers to help them prepare for life with a baby, as well as everything they need to know and do during each stage of a young child's life.

In an effort to help the Department provide mother's the supplies they need, we're teaming up with the east side Walmart in Evansville to host a Diaper Drive beginning at 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 13th. We'll broadcast live from Walmart all day long collecting your donations of diapers, bottles, wipes, and other baby items the Health Department will in turn give to the mothers in the program who otherwise may not be able to afford them at this time.

If you can't make it to Walmart on the 13th, the Health Department have set up gift registries through both Walmart and Amazon giving you the opportunity to make a contribution now.

Click either button below (or both!) to make a donation today!
