Community Preparing For "World's Largest Baby Shower"

by Stuart Burson

The world's largest baby shower is taking place right here in East Texas. Christian radio station KSWP and Brookshire Brothers have teamed up to collect donations for women who find themselves unexpectedly pregnant and are in need of assistance.

The drive for baby goods will benefit the "Pregnancy Help Medical Center" in Lufkin and the "Heartbeat Crisis Pregnancy Center" in Nacogdoches, both of which help supply these expectant mothers with the necessary items to help take care of their newborns. Organizers request that you donate all types of items for infant care, but they say they are especially in need of diapers.

You can drop off your donation at any Brookshire Brothers store within Nacogdoches and Angelina counties, at KSWP radio located on Highway 69 north, the pregnancy help medical center in Lufkin, or the Heartbeat Crisis Pregnancy Center in Nacogdoches. If you've experienced an unplanned pregnancy, and are in need of baby supplies, you can contact either the Pregnancy Help Medical Center in Lufkin at 632-9292 or the Heartbeat Crisis Pregnancy Center in Nacogdoches at 569-6288 for assistance.
