Stephanie Adamson Central Iowa Community Baby Shower 2666 Park P1 Norwalk, Iowa 50211 May 18, 2015 Dear North Warren Town and County News: Thank you so much for featuring an article in the N/ Warren Town and County News on the Central Iowa Commtmity Baby Shower. Currently; I in 3 morns can't afford to buy diapers or other basic necessities for her child. Others must choose between buying diapers or gas to get to work. This poses quite the problem to many families trying to make ends meet. Often babies are left in soiled diapers with a ra- tion of only one diaper a da35 posing the threat of chronic urinary tract infections and diaper rash. Babies left in wet diapers are also more likely to cry; causing more stress to a room already stressed about providing the necessities her baby needs. This greatly increases the likelihood of child abuse and neglect. The goal of the shower was to empower at risk and low income morns in our community while providing them with the supplies they need to create a strong foun- dation for a better tomorrow. We ended up receiving enough donations to be able to aid 28 in need morns. There has been an enormous amount of positive feed- back and several participating morns have called or emailed me explaining how much this shower helped them, how thankful they are, and what a relief it was to be able to get help. This help would not have been pos- sible if it wasn't for the kindness and generosity and assistance of donors such as yourself. Morns attending the shower were able to view pre- sentations by local professionals, win raffle prizes, gain information on important local resources, and each morn attending received gifts of baby supplies and diapers. We also had the entire hallway of the church filled with used clothing moms were able to take, as well as a table of books and a large selection of toys. There are no words to properly thank you for your help in spreading the word. When initiating this event, I never dreamed how successful or how much hope it would bring to the families participating, Thank you form the bottom of my heart for helping touch the lives of Iowa families in need. For more information on how we are continuing to help make a difference in the lives of morns and babies in our community, we invite you to check us out on Facebook at "Central Iowa Community Baby Shower." Thank you again, and we look forward to your contin- ued support.
