Councilwoman Schipske

Councilwoman Schipske started the “Community Baby Shower” several years ago to provide a “basic going-home newborn kit” for low-income mothers to use after giving birth in local hospitals. This year, Councilwoman Schipske has again partnered with Long Beach Cares and the Long Beach Public Health Nurses to hold the Community Baby Shower.

You may help by donating new items for the newborn kits, including: diapers, diaper bags, baby wipes, bibs, onesies, socks, blankets, hats and mittens. Contributions of money (made out to Long Beach Cares) are also accepted. Donations can be dropped off on Mondays and Wednesdays during the month of May at 2760 N. Studebaker Road.

Volunteers are  invited to assist in assembling the kits at the Community Baby Shower on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 at 3pm at the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services, 2525 Grand Avenue, Long Beach 90815.
