Editorial: Supporting the Safe to Sleep Campaign

Each year, about 4,000 infants die unexpectedly during sleep time, from SIDS, accidental suffocation, or unknown causes.

Join WALB, as we partner with the Department of Public Health and the Division of Family and Children Services as we help raise awareness for the national Safe to Sleep Campaign.

On Friday, June 17th, WALB will air special educational pieces on safe sleeping practices for babies and young children, and we will also be asking for your help.

Please donate new or gently used pack n plays, bassinets, crib mattresses, crib sheets or new cribs.

Your donations will stay here in Southwest Georgia, and they could help safe a life.

For more information on this event, visit the "Know the ABCs of Safe Sleep" section on our homepage.
