Community to support worldwide breastfeeding event

In order to raise breastfeeding awareness, six organizations are coming together to sponsor “The Big Latch On” — a breastfeeding event at Courthouse Square Park — from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Aug. 4.

Mothers are encouraged to come out with their babies to participate in an international “latch on” at 10:30 a.m. to support World Breastfeeding Week; no registration fee is required.

The event will also include music, door prizes, snacks, raffles and information on breastfeeding.

To learn out more information about the event, contact Lucy Walters at 704-986-3040 and lwalters@stanlycountync.gov, or Jessica Ledbetter at 704-986-3038 and jledbetter@stanlycountync.gov.
