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

Last year the center logged 879 visits to the
"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
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.
