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.
