New Stork's Nest accepts donations for healthy babies

As a nurse dedicated to community health, Triumphant Soror Margaret B. Cooke spearheaded the chapter's first Stork's Nest in 1975. Now, the Chapter has reestablished its Stork's Nest and named it in honor of our triumphant trailblazer, Soror Cooke.

The Stork’s Nest program is a signature program of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. in partnership with the March of Dimes. Its aim is to increase the number of women receiving early and regular prenatal care in an effort to prevent cases of low birth-weight, premature births and infant deaths. Nationally, over 80 local Stork’s Nests work to this through education and baby care incentives. Locally, Alpha Phi Zeta Chapter has partnered with the First English Evangelical Lutheran Church as the nest site to house baby care incentive items and serve the Richmond area.

Now through March 31, 2022, the Stork's Nest program will accept new and gently used baby care items to support the nest. How to donate:
