Community Baby Shower Saturday

The 4th Annual Community Baby Shower, sponsored by Mothers Of Preschoolers (MOPS), will be held at 9 a.m. - noon this Saturday, at Sierra Vista Presbyterian Church, 39696 Highway 41, Oakhurst.

The event offers free diapers, wipes, toys, and lots of clothing for Mountain Area families. Thanks again to a large monetary donation from the members of Sierra Vista Presbyterian Church, 26 new car seats will be given away to families that need them.

There will be information tables for MOPS, Sierra Vista, Yosemite Lakes Community Church, EV Free, Sierra Pines, First 5, Head Start, and Helping Hands. A lactation consultant will offer free services to new or expectant moms.

More than 80 families attended last year’s event.

“We are hoping for an even larger turnout this year,” said MOPS Outreach Coordinator Joy Judd. “Families love the free items we provide, but I feel the bigger impact of the event is for moms to connect with other moms and representatives of area services and resources that are available to infants and preschoolers.”

Judd said organizers want moms to leave the shower feeling supported, and loved.

“We want these moms to know they are not alone during this exciting and sometimes difficult time in their life,” Judd said.
