COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. - A community baby shower is happening on Saturday in Cottage Grove.
A family resource center, 90by30, is working with Pip and Grow to unveil the Welcome Baby Box project.
Organizers said baby boxes lower the risk of sudden infant death syndrome or SIDS. The project will also provide new parents with essentials.
The baby shower will take place on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Bohemia Park.
Families can also register for the baby boxes. They will be available to all infants born in south Lane County starting in August.
