About

OPERATION SHOWER'S MISSION IS TO HOST GROUP BABY SHOWERS FOR MILITARY MOMS AND MOMS-TO-BE. THE MILITARY MOM NOMINATED FOR A SHOWER MUST (1) HAVE A SPOUSE OR PARTNER WHO IS DEPLOYED OR DEPLOYING DURING THE PREGNANCY, (2) BE ACTIVE DUTY WITH A GROUP THAT IS DEPLOYING OR (3) HAVE A PARTNER WHO WAS INJURED DURING DEPLOYMENT. WE ALSO INCLUDE FAMILIES WHO UNDERGO EXTENDED NON-DEPLOYMENT ABSENCES DURING THE PREGNANCY. WE ASK THAT THE MOMS HAVE NOT BEEN PREVIOUSLY SHOWERED BY ANOTHER GROUP DURING THE CURRENT PREGNANCY, AND THAT THE BABY IS NO OLDER THAN THREE MONTHS AT THE TIME OF THE SHOWER.OPERATION SHOWER HOSTED 16 GROUP BABY SHOWERS IN 2018 IN ARIZONA, CALIFORNIA, COLORADO, CONNECTICUT, DC, FLORIDA, MASSACHUSETTS, MISSOURI, NEW YORK, PENNSYLVANIA, SOUTH CAROLINA, AND TEXAS. THE SHOWERS WERE ON AVERAGE OVER 30 MOMS AND THEIR GUESTS. THE TOTAL NUMBER OF MOMS SHOWERED AT A GROUP BABY SHOWER IN 2018 WAS FIVE HUNDRED- THIRTY-ONE 531. FAMILIES IN ALL BRANCHES OF THE MILITARY WERE SERVED BY OUR SHOWERS. OPERATION SHOWER PROVIDED BABY GIFTS TO THE FAMILIES TO RELIEVE THE STRESS CAUSED BY DEPLOYMENT AND ACTIVE DUTY, WHICH ALLOWED FAMILIES IN SIMILAR SITUATIONS TO CONNECT WITH EACH OTHER. THROUGH OPERATION SHOWER'S B IS FOR BABY PROGRAM, THE ORGANIZATION WAS ABLE TO PROVIDE BABY SHOWERS IN A BOX TO THOSE FAMILIES WHO WERE UNABLE TO BE AT A SHOWER IN PERSON. THIS PROGRAM HAS ALLOWED THE ORGANIZATION TO REACH FAMILIES AND PROVIDE ITEMS TO THOSE IN NEED AND DESERVING OF THE ORGANIZATION'S SUPPORT. THESE PROGRAMS ALLOW AN OPPORTUNITY FOR INDIVIDUALS AND COMPANIES TO EXPRESS THEIR THANKS, LOVE AND SUPPORT TO MILITARY FAMILIES THROUGH THEIR VARIOUS DONATIONS.
