Throughout the month of April, Scott Credit Union is collecting new items to benefit the American Red Cross’ Women Warriors Baby Shower.
The baby shower, which will take place in June at Jefferson Barracks, will honor 75 military families of enlisted ranks E-1 to E-5 (Active, Guard, Reserve), military spouses, or women veterans receiving care through the St. Louis VA. These women fall below the median income in the region and this may be the only baby shower they will have as loved ones live in different parts of the country.
This program is unique to the local Red Cross and in its 5th year. The goal of the shower is to provide each woman with a diaper bag full of items, cases of diapers, and a few larger necessities.
The wish list to support military families and help them start their babies’ lives with essential items includes:
- Baby Clothing, including onesies & sleepers (gender neutral, sizes Newborn to 12 months)
- Bibs, bath towels, blankets
- Diapers & wipes
- Bouncy seats
- Baby carriers
- High chairs
- Gift Cards
Please note that all items should be NEW and UNUSED. Donations can be dropped off at any SCU branch April 1-30.
