WIC staff would like to express our genuine appreciation to all who attended our Community Baby Shower on April 24, 2024.
We appreciate your attendance at the event; you greatly contributed to its success. We hope you had as much fun at the Community Baby Shower as we did planning it. This event was for expectant mothers and mothers with a baby under one year old. We had 27 women sign up for the event this year and a few extras that attended. Each mother received education on Safe Sleep, goody bags from PCHD and MU Extension/Pike County 4-H, diapers, and resource guides on WIC and Breastfeeding.
Refreshments, game prizes, door prizes, and generous donations/gifts were provided by the following: Pike County WIC, Maternal Child Health Program, Trimble House Diaper Fund, Home State Health Insurance, Community State Bank, Mechanical Quill Tattoo Studio, Kohl’s Wholesale, Walmart Store #0145, General Mills, Katy & Co., Pepsi, The Salvation Army/KROC, JCPenney, Spring Hollow Coffee, DG Firearms LLC, Church of Nazarene, Ralls County Mothers of Preschoolers, Parents as Teachers, Absolute Perfection, Mary Kay, Children’s Trust Fund, Honeysuckle Café Breastfeeding Group, and First Church (Vandalia).
We also appreciate Parents at Teachers attending and providing a craft for the older children and promoting the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Children under the age of five who enroll in the program receive one free book per month until they turn five years old.
We also greatly appreciate Home State Health Insurance Company for attending and having a table set up to provide information and answer questions.
A big shout out to the WIC staff and PCHD staff who helped make this event possible. We thank all the sponsors for monetary donations and/or gifts; our community is strengthened by your support and generosity.
