Moms in Need get Mother's Day Gift from Health Dept.

Posted: Updated:

The Erie County Health Department has a special Mother's Day gift for local low- income moms.

They're called "boppy pillows", and they're used throughout the first year of life for anything from breast feeding, to tummy time, to teaching your baby how to sit up.

They run about $40 a pillow, but thanks to a donation from "The Boppy Company", the health department is giving away 100.

They're going to moms who they help through the Nurse- Family Partnership.

"This partnership between The Boppy Company and Nurse- Family Partnership gives us another tool to help promote that support that we have for the moms and their families," said Charlotte Berringer of the Erie County Health Department. 

For every boppy pillow purchased at Babies "R" Us through May, one will be given to a mom in need.
