Martina McBride and Team Music Is Love Celebrate Young Mothers at Covenant House Shelter in New York City

Country superstar Martina McBride – along with her fan driven charity initiative, Team Music Is Love – turned her 2017 Love Unleashed Tour into a philanthropic crusade. The tour, consisting of an all-female cast of artists, has served as a platform to spread positivity and empower others.  On March 9th Martina and her team celebrated the young mothers who live at Covenant House, a homeless youth shelter in New York City, by hosting a baby shower for the group.

Martina partnered with Huggies Diapers, First Quality, and Cuties Diapers to stock the shelter with several essentials all new mothers need but may not have access to. Each mother received a gift bag full of bath supplies, books, and educational toys. Huggies also gave a one-month supply of Huggies Little Snugglers Diapers to each mom as a part of their “No Baby Unhugged” program. In all, over 18,000 diapers were donated to the Covenant House and the mothers.

After a lunch provided by Olive Garden and a memorable afternoon of meeting with the women and children, Martina surprised the mothers and Covenant House staff by inviting the entire shelter to her show that night at PlayStation Theater.

Through Team Music Is Love, Martina partners with non-profit causes to help many of the communities she’s performing in and invites fans to join her team in making the world a better place through the power of music. Since 2011, Team Music Is Love has been responsible for many successful fundraising and volunteer projects helping causes such as hunger relief, cancer research, combating domestic violence and helping children in need.
