The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is hosting the first-ever “Nationwide Baby Shower for Veterans” in May, 2018. The VA Center for Women Veterans posted the following:

‘This week-long event will take place at 60 VA Medical across the country from May 7-11, 2018, the week leading up to Mother’s Day on May 13. So far, over 2,400 new Veteran parents and new Veteran parents-to-be have signed up to participate! Here’s where we need your help. In order to provide a uniform experience to our new Veteran parents, we developed a sweet and sensible new baby package containing a variety of useful baby products: a diaper bag, new bags by toiletries, hair brush and comb set, bib, layette, blanket, and hat. Just $50 will purchase a new baby kit full of terrific items to be delivered to the Veteran at their local Baby Shower. There are three ways you can help.’
