Royal Baby's Arrival Helps Stateline Mothers

The royal baby's arrival is helping young mothers in the Stateline.

It's part of the royal baby shower at the University Cub on Main. Several people donated everything from diapers and formula to baby wipes.

But this isn't for England's newest addition. These donations go to Rockford's MELD, a non profit organization which provides emergency housing for young parents. One mother says she's grateful for the help.

"I'm so grateful you know nobody likes to have to ask for help but just getting all of this help from them, seeing all those diapers. some of them are going to go on this little guy," said Alexandra Hughes.

Other donations will go towards a scholarship for District 205 students.
