TWOQC baby shower for military families

Janice Pell

June 25, 2016, is the date of The Women of Quail Creek’s fifth annual baby shower for 25 expectant mothers of military families. Event Chair Pam Rodgers and her committee are already hard at work making plans for the shower which is always a lot of fun for all involved.

The shower is a way of showing community support to service women and men. In order to attend either the mother or father must be currently active in the armed forces. In the upcoming months, TWOQC will be collecting contributions of handmade and new baby items for the shower and hopes that those in the community will again this year consider donating. It takes a great number of newborn baby essentials to fill the totes and baskets prepared by the baby shower committee for each mom.

Suitable layette items needed include baby clothes sizes three to 18 months for both boy and girl babies. Knitted hats and booties, diapers, wipes, baby lotions, crib blankets and baby toys are always appreciated. One of a kind items including baby books, picture frames, strollers, high chairs and new car seats are being sought to use as special prizes. Contributions will be accepted at the January 25 meeting of TWOQC.

Cash contributions are much appreciated to allow the purchase of additional necessities, such as diapers, to fill the baskets given to each family. Checks should be made out to TWOQC Charity Account.
