DENVER – Denver Health Medical Center will be collecting new baby items during “Denver’s Biggest Baby Shower,” their annual one day donation event on Saturday.

Each year, over 3,000 babies are born at Denver Health Medical Center, many of whom are born into families experiencing financial hardship.

Through their Newborns in Need program, Denver Health sends each baby home with a “Warm Welcome” bag of such necessities as blankets, diapers and baby clothing.

Denver Health is now inviting the public to drop off new baby products at the hospital during the event on Saturday. The hospital is located at 301 W. 6th Avenue in Denver.

The following items are requested:

  • Disposable diapers (size 1 or 2)
  • Baby wipes
  • Baby wash/shampoo
  • Convertible car seats
  • Blankets
  • Onesies/undershirts/sleepers/sweaters
  • Newborn socks and bibs
  • Nursing supplies (pads, cream, etc.)
  • Baby ear thermometers
  • Baby picture books
  • Infant toys
  • Umbrella strollers
  • Cribs and crib sheets

All donated items must be new and Denver Health is asking that no bottles or formula be donated as well.

Cash donations can made online or at local King Soopers locations.
