The Mu Pi Zeta chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. is soliciting donations for local Stork's Nests, which provide community-based prenatal care.

The program is designed to promote prenatal care participation and healthy behavior during pregnancy through incentives and education. Stork's News clients earn points toward incentives, such as maternity or baby care items, by attending prenatal care appointments, education classes and well-baby visits.

Needed items include: diapers, wipes, lotions, shampoo, baby wash, bottles, bibs, onesies and clothing. Iterms can be delivered to Stokes Used Car Center, 96 Robert Smalls Parkway, Beaufort through Dec. 14.
