Veterans’ Baby Shower

We filled up the trunks with gifts at the Veterans baby shower


Assistance League of Reno-Sparks Veterans Outreach members participated in the annual Veterans Administration Sierra Nevada veterans’ baby shower structured as a drive-through in one of the VA Hospital’s parking lots.  The moms and dads drove through at 10-minute intervals and were able to stay in their cars, while Assistance League members showered their trunks and backseats with baby gifts.

Each of the 27 shower attendees received a stuffed diaper bag donated by Assistance League members which included onesies, baby-care essentials, bibs, and receiving blankets.   Three other stations along the drive-through route were set up for the veterans to collect diapers, gift bags with various baby items, prepackaged snacks to go, and beautiful hand-made baby blankets.

Nine additional veterans identified by the Women’s Veterans Program who could not attend had their goodies delivered.

Veterans were happy to pick up their gifts at the VA baby shower   A great team did great work at the Veterans baby shower
