Always a favorite day of members, we delight in gathering together for a lovely lunch before the holiday season kicks into full throttle. Even more than having a chance to catch up with friends, our members are committed to bringing lots of things babies need: diapers, wipes, onesies, bouncy chairs, toys and such. Of course with the Angel Harvey Family Health Center providing care for patients of all ages, toys and clothes for older children are also among our favorites to donate.
This year Cheryl Beadle, community relations manager for the Angel Harvey Family Health Center of the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago, talked to us about how our baby shower gifts are vitally important and empowering for the dedicated staff members who are able to make sure families have what they need, when they need it. “We take pride in what you’ve done. We honor your donations. Because of you, we have what we need for mothers and children,” Cheryl said, adding, “The patients are full of pride and deserving of the care we provide.”
