April Showers Baby Shower To Rain Gifts For Families in Martin, St. Lucie, Okeechobee Counties

As part of its 50th Anniversary celebration, Helping People Succeed is coordinating a month-long “April Showers Baby Shower,” asking Martin, St. Lucie, and Okeechobee communities to assist with baby items that will be distributed to families in need through Helping People Succeed Baby Steps Programs.

The non-profit organization serves more than 4,500 families in Martin, St. Lucie, and Okeechobee counties, offering home visits to families with newborns, intensive parenting education and guidance for high risk families, and developmental intervention services for families with children under three with developmental challenges. All programs focus on helping families become stronger and more self- sufficient, with confident parenting skills to give their child the best start possible.

Making sure that families have “baby necessities” as they raise their young children, Helping People Succeed has set up a Wish List for the “Baby Shower.” Among the items on the list are diapers, bottles, wipes, clothing, rattles, developmental toys, books, booties and blankets. Other items will be accepted, as well.

Drop-off boxes for April Showers gifts are located at the following locations in Martin and St. Lucie counties: Helping People Succeed (Stuart), Treasure Coast Primary Care (Stuart), Spraker & Prinz (Stuart), Kimberly A. Dettori, DDS, MS, PA (East Ocean Boulevard), Law Offices of Laws Scott and Gillespie (Colorado Avenue), Anchor Financial Services (Stuart), Style Encore (Regency Square Shopping Center), Strategic Retirement Group (Stuart), Children’s Services Council of Martin County (Stuart), Michael Leonard’s Salon (Palm City), Dr. Genon Wicina Pediatrics (Port Salerno), Dr. Yvette Bushey Pediatrics (Jensen Beach), Harbor Community Bank (Indiantown), Anthony V’s Pizza (Tradition), Hurricane Grill and Wings (Fort Pierce), Studio 207 Salon & Spa (Fort Pierce), Indiantown Gas Company (Indiantown) and Healthy Families Office (Okeechobee).
