New Nonprofit Gives Expectant Moms Early Bundle of Joy

During an afternoon luncheon on Thursday, several dozen pregnant Berkshire County women were among the first to receive these "baby boxes" - a sturdy cardboard box that can double as a safe bed that comes filled with all sorts of useful items for new mothers, including clothing like a onesie with a "413" on it, safety items like outlet covers, board books to encourage early literacy, and diapers, caps and bibs. It even has some tea and a snack for the mom, to make sure she takes care of herself.
