Rappahannock United Way is collecting new, age-appropriate supplies for local babies. Healthy beginnings for babies and young children are vital for early childhood health and success!
Top needs: Diapers, wipes, and basic clothing items.

We are proud to partner with Healthy Families to deliver these Seasons of Service activities!
