Babypalooza a success for Pregnancy Help Center

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Texas sized baby shower has come to an end and Pregnancy Help Center officials say this year's Babypalooza was the best shower in the center's eight year history.

The Pregnancy Help Center received over 10 thousand diapers, 640 packages of wipes and numerous other items for expecting and growing families.

 All the items will go into the center's resource room, families shop in the room using vouchers they receive by attending parenting classes.

 Last year the center logged 879 visits to the resource room.

"That means 879 different clients were able to receive baby items, babypalooza is important in this effort because if we don't have the items to offer they can't visit our resource room," said Paula Havard, Executive Director, Pregnancy Help Center.

Officials say even though they make a big push for donations early in the year, donations are needed all year round to keep the resource room fully stocked.

In addition to a successful babypalooza, the center also raised enough money for a new ultrasound. They will receive the new technology on April 1st.
