Martina Sends Love To Covenant House Mothers

Martina McBride and her fan-driven charity, Team Music Is Love, turned her 2017 Love Unleashed Tour into a chance to help young mothers at Covenant House, a homeless youth shelter in New York City, by hosting a baby shower for the group. On March 9, Martina and her team celebrated the young mothers who live at Covenant House, partnering with Huggies Diapers, First Quality, and Cuties Diapers to stock the shelter with essentials all new mothers need. Each mother received a gift bag full of bath supplies, books, and educational toys and in all, over 18,000 diapers were donated to the Covenant House and the mothers. Martina also surprised the mothers and Covenant House staff by inviting the entire shelter to her show that night at PlayStation Theater.
