Volunteers put their stitching skills to work for first-time mothers

WALNUT HILLS, OH ( FOX19) - United Way volunteers hand make fleece blankets for mothers in need on Saturday. The blankets will go to Every Child Succeeds to distribute to first-time mothers and their children in the tri-state. The 3rd annual event was hosted by the Women's Leadership Council and Women Investing in the Next Generation.

Every Child Succeeds goal is to prepare new mothers by doing home visits to help teach the parent about child safety, health care and early intervention which helps the bonding process. For more information on Every Child Succeeds go to their website.
