Distribution of Items.
All items collected will be distributed during the Community Baby Shower event, to be held in late fall (place and date to be set). Families do not need to receive any agency services to be invited to this event.
In addition to door prizes and shower games, the Community Baby Shower will include educational presentations on key issues like early brain development, nutrition and breast feeding, early literacy and financial well-being. Parents that attend the event will have access to additional community resources.
Due to limited space, the first 100 expectant mothers or parents of babies (newborn to 12 months) will be placed on the invitation list. For additional information on the Community Baby Shower or to register, please call 608-770-9588 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
