Weston Women’s League members hosted the league’s annual baby shower for Family and Children’s Agency MOMS program clients in Norwalk.
Each spring, the league hosts a shower for new mothers and mothers-to-be in the MOMS program. Guests are treated to baby shower games and crafts, a luncheon, a talk on immunization by the Norwalk Health Department and they receive hampers of baby toys, diapers, wipes, clothing and other goodies.
“We would like to thank IKEA of New Haven for donating the baby hampers and brand new soft stuffed animals. Secondly, we have to thank Walmart at 650 Main Ave., Norwalk, for donating gift cards used to purchase diapers and wipes for the moms and babies,” said Annmarie McDonald, Weston Women’s League baby shower chairman.
Lula Belle Jewelry of Westport donated bracelets for the moms and moms-to-be and Bulls Head Market of Norwalk provided food for the luncheon at cost.
League members knitted baby booties and local seniors knitted hats. The league collected new and gently used baby items like clothes, board books, blankets and rattles to fill the hampers.
“Weston Women’s League members all pitched in to help; a real team effort and truly a labor of love,” Ms. McDonald said.
