Schipske’s office seeking donations for community baby shower

Fifth District Councilmember Gerrie Schipske began the “Community Baby Shower” several years ago to provide a “basic going-home newborn kit” for low-income mothers to use after giving birth in local hospitals.
This year, Schipske has again partnered with Long Beach Cares and Long Beach public-health nurses to host the benefit.
Those interested may help by donating new items for the newborn kits, including: diapers, diaper bags, baby wipes, bibs, onesies, socks, blankets, hats and mittens.
Contributions of money (checks made out to Long Beach Cares) are also accepted. Donations can be dropped off on Mondays and Wednesdays during the month of May at 2760 N. Studebaker Rd.
Volunteers are also invited to assist in assembling the kits at the Community Baby Shower on Wednesday, May 29 at 3pm at Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services, 2525 Grand Ave.
For more information, contact Rachel at (562) 570-6932.
