ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The Atlanta Red Cross Tiffany Circle partnered with the Atlanta VA Medical Center’s Women Veterans Health Committee to host a baby shower for more than 60 expecting women veterans from the metro Atlanta area.

According to the Women’s Wellness Program Manager Tasha Felton Williams, “Atlanta has one of the largest military populations in the United States, ranking 5th, and is also home to the largest number of pregnant veterans.”

They made a press release for the event: 

This event provides the unique opportunity for the Red Cross and the Atlanta VA Medical Center to collaborate, in honoring military mothers-to-be and let them know we appreciate the sacrifices they have made for our country.

Expecting mothers will be served lunch as they are presented with essentials to prepare a safe and healthy start for their baby’s arrival. Gifts donated by generous sponsors include: Red Cross safety kits, car seats, strollers, diapers, diaper bags and much more!

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. It's a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
