'Baby shower' to benefit unplanned pregnancies

St. Francis and Visitation Catholic parishes are teaming up to help Birthright of Hillsboro, an organization that offers love and support — including referrals and resources — to women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy.

As a service project for a confirmation class, three girls are putting together a fundraiser for Birthright of Hillsboro. They are hosting a “baby shower” in order to gather gifts of baby clothes, shoes, diapers, bottles, bibs, and other supplies for unborn children and their mothers.

The shower will be Sunday, Dec. 6, starting at 11:30 a.m., and will include a potluck in the basement of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, 38975 N.W. Harrington Road, in Roy.

The event is open to the public. Attendees are asked to bring a potluck dish, pastry or fruit to share, and an unwrapped baby gift. Please no baby furniture (cribs, car seats, strollers), formula or pacifiers.
