VFW Auxiliary changes ‘baby shower’ plans

The Atmore VFW Auxiliary has been planning to hold a “baby shower” to benefit the Women’s Health Program at Birmingham VA Medical Center which provides maternity care to expecting moms and mothers who are veterans. The event is called the Mommy and Me baby shower.

The drop-off day was to be this Saturday, January 11. However, due to the threat of severe weather, VFW Auxiliary President Gayle Johnson is requesting the following changes. The drop-off place will still be Atmore News, 128 S. Main Street. However, instead of bringing items by Saturday between 10 a.m. and noon, as originally scheduled, you may bring items by the Atmore News office Friday, January 10, and Monday, January 13, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Members of the Auxiliary will pick up the donations Tuesday, January 14.

Following is a list of items requested:

* Diapers

* Diaper rash ointment

* Baby wipes

* Baby Lotion

* Baby shampoo/wash

* Baby combs and brushes

* Pacifiers

* Sippy cups and bottles

* Blankets

* Clothing items (onesies, socks, etc.)

* Car seats

* Highchairs
