Donations Sought for Inaugural Community Baby Shower


The Central Oregon Perinatal Care Team, together with St. Charles Health System, Central Oregon Health Council and other valued community partners, are seeking donations for the inaugural Central Oregon Community Baby Shower.

Resources will include WIC nutrition education, lactation support, Oregon Health Plan enrollment, representatives from OSU extension, home visiting and family support programs, information and education on safe sleep, car seats and more.
