One of our favorite military support organizations, Soldiers' Anglels will host America's largest military baby shower on October 10 in Las Vegas for 32 new and expectant mothers who have deployed partners or are active-duty servicewomen. Sponsored by Operation Top Knot, the surprise event will include gifts from the local community and flowers from expectant fathers.
Soldiers' Angels project team Operation Top Knot is a nationwide network of
individuals who use their talents to support infants and expectant mothers of
military families. Dedicated volunteers knit, crochet, sew, quilt, and design
blankets, baby clothes and other homemade gifts. They also assemble and
deliver or ship gift baskets for mother and child. Additionally, they help
deployed fathers celebrate by sending them "It's a Boy!" or "It's a Girl!"
The shower will be held on October 10 at the Nevada National Guard Armory in
Las Vegas, 6400 Range Road, from 1 p.m. to 3 pm. The press is welcome to
attend, and no permission from Public Affairs is needed.
Soldiers' Angels is a volunteer-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing aid and
comfort to America's military men and women, as well as veterans and military
families. For more information, see www.soldiersangels.org or contact Jody
