* Mom's Day Baby Shower Project supports Young Children Priority One (YCPO) through donations to Child Abuse Prevention Association. YCPO is an ongoing community service program of Kiwanis International that addresses the needs of children 0-5. All clubs are encouraged to carry out at least two YCPO projects per calendar year, though many clubs are able to do more—serving children, families, and communities.

Young Children Priority One focuses on four key areas:
maternal and child health;
child care and development;
parent education and support; and
safety and pediatric trauma.
