WSB’s Jovita Moore teams up with Genesis Shelter

oeyrrlgdrv2772cac616Channel 2 anchor Jovita Moore is teaming up with Genesis Shelter on Thursday to collect needed supplies as part of Georgia Gives Day.

Genesis serves homeless newborns and their families. Donors may bring items to the WSB studios starting at 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

Visitors should come to the 24-hour security entrance, which is the second gate at the studios located at 1601 W. Peachtree Street. Moore will help collect donations and meet viewers at 11 a.m. Donations will be accepted throughout the day.

“I’m on the board at Genesis and I know this has been a tough year for the staff,” Moore said. “They’ve had to make difficult decisions for months because of cuts from funding sources. The idea to do this just came to me a couple of weeks ago. We use social media for so many things – why not use it to galvanize people for a very special reason: newborn babies who are just absolutely precious.”

Here’s what the shelter needs, in order of preference. Donors are asked bring only these items:

• Monetary Gifts

• Baby Wipes

• New Bed Pillows

• Full Size Bar Soap

• New Brooms

• Baby Wash

• Baby Lotion

• Baby Powder

• Powdered Laundry Detergent

• Cleaning Supplies

Thanks to all donors!
