Beverly’s Birthdays hosts shower for needy moms
Expectant moms who can use a little help preparing for their little one’s arrival may qualify for an upcoming “Itty Bitty Birthday Cheer” community baby shower.
Beverly’s Birthdays, a nonprofit based in North Huntingdon, provides birthday celebrations for children experiencing homelessness and for families in need.
From 11 a.m.-1 p.m. June 29, it will host its first shower for pregnant Westmoreland County mothers in need at Calvary Church, 8563 Pennsylvania Ave., Irwin.
“Basically what we say is the shower is open to women in Westmoreland County experiencing some type of need,” explains founder Megs Yunn. “Our ‘Itty Bitty Baby’ program has been around for four years in Allegheny County.”
Calvary Church has selected the charity as one it will support in 2019, and is contributing funding to the baby shower, Yunn says.
“Our Fashion Truck will be there. We are calling it a baby boutique on wheels,” she says.
The event will be a “classic baby shower,” Yunn says, with games, food catered by Moe’s Southwest Grill, gifts, an opportunity for the moms to “shop the truck” and early intervention resource providers on hand.
All moms also will receive an Itty Bitty Birthday Cheer Bin containing diapers, wipes, a bottle, a book, a new outfit, a pacifier and a small toy, Yunn says.
The goal of the event is to celebrate the mothers and help them prepare for their new babies, she adds.
Interested moms-to-be are asked to register by calling 724-590-5106.
