Star-Spangled Baby Shower in Little Rock July 13

Operation Homefront to hosting event for Arkansas military moms. Registration required.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - A star-spangled baby shower for 50 new or expectant military moms will be held at the Clinton Presidential Library later this month.

It's being co-hosted by the Arkansas Field office of Operation Homefront and Walmart.

The event is July 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Registration is required (click here).

The event will include lunch, educational information, and a series of hands-on activities geared toward stress management and care giving preparation. Participants will be given necessary baby items and have an opportunity to win raffle prizes.

The shower's goal is to uplift Arkansas’s military spouses with a network of support, preparing them for motherhood.

“Operation Homefront recognizes the sacrifice these families are making for our country”, said Executive Director Carol Herrick.  “Facing budget cuts, drawdowns, and ongoing deployments, military life can be very stressful. Operation Homefront facilitates support from the community to bolster these families through a happy but stressful time in their life. Most of our attendees are separated from family and may not have a traditional baby shower. What we can do is create that same sense of family and community support, and provide necessary resources. “

Operation Homefront is a national nonprofit which leads more than 4,500 volunteers with nationwide presence, and has met more than 590,000 needs of military families since its inception in 2002.
