A little competition among friends is nearly always a good thing. This time the competition will benefit the National Guard Military Families during the annual The Women of Quail Creek Baby Shower. Each unit representative is encouraging his or her residents to donate either requested items or funds to support the baby shower to be held in late June. The winning unit will be calculated by dividing the total donation amount by the number of sold homes. The winning unit will get an honorable mention in Quail Creek’s What’s Happening and a future Quail Creek Crossing, as well as the most important thing – bragging rights!

A total of 29 families, with 30 expected babies, are signed up to participate in this year’s shower. Donations of layette items including baby clothes sizes three months to 18 months for both boy and girl babies are needed. Additionally, diapers, wipes, baby wash, baby lotion, crib blankets and baby toys are needed. As always cash is most welcome so the baby shower committee shoppers can purchase items to add to the existing supplies and fill in items that were not donated.

Donations may be dropped off at Pam Rogers’ house at 2640 E. Sawyer Road or call her at 520-561-7969 or email her at [email protected] and she will be glad to pick them up. Collection boxes are also in the clubhouse lobby and at the Anza Fitness Center. People are encouraged to identify their unit when donations are made. And, if you have already made a donation, please let Pam Rogers know your unit number so your unit will get credit during this friendly competition.
