The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) has announced a new partnership with Children's Hospital of Richmond (CHoR) at Virginia Commonwealth University and The Baby Box Co. to equip Virginia's new and expecting families with safe sleep education.
For guidance on how new parents in Virginia can receive a free baby box, please be aware of the following:
-Parents must register for free online at BabyBoxUniversity.com as a Virginia resident using their contact information, including mailing address.
-Parents must watch the 15-20 minute Virginia syllabus at BabyBoxUniversity.com. After taking a short quiz, parents will receive a certificate of completion and then select local pick-up or direct delivery of their Baby Box.
-For more immediate receipt, parents should bring their Baby Box University certificate and visit their closest distribution site, which can be found here. If parents select direct delivery, their Baby Box will ship to the address provided at registration on Baby Box University. You can find distribution centers by clicking here:
