Community Baby Shower

For several years, the United Way of SCC has helped provide supplies and resources for Chautauqua County babies through the Community Baby Shower.  Area businesses, organizations, book clubs, schools, etc. have all come together in unique ways to gather donated baby items. To come together in these efforts, some participate in team-building activities within their organizations, schools have collection activities to educate and engage students while also giving back to the community, and stores that sell baby items provide opportunities at checkout to purchase items and/or donate to the Community Baby Shower program. This year, we'll be collecting items for the Community Baby Shower from April 18-June 15.

Here's How you can help:

  • Host a baby shower: Create an event or drop off at your business or organization and bring the essentials for families to the United Way office (208 Pine Street, Jamestown)
  •  Buy items from our Amazon Wish List
  • Text babyunited to 41444 to donate money directly to our Community Baby Shower campaign. 100% of the proceeds will go towards purchasing items for the Community Baby Shower. Click here to donate now!
  • Donate on June 9th during Give Big Chq to UWAY SCC: All donations on United Way’s GIVE BIG CHQ 24-hour giving page will go to purchase items for our Community Baby Shower.

Thank you in advance for your help in providing supplies and monetary donations for Chautauqua County babies. All questions can be directed to Lindsey Goold, Director of Community Impact for the United Way of SCC, at (716) 483-1561 or by emailing her at
