Stork's Nest Baby Shower

WHAT: The 11th annual Stork’s Nest Baby Shower, hosted by the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) Larry Combest Community Health & Wellness Center and March of Dimes.

WHEN: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 20 (Saturday)

WHERE: Kmart, 6501 University Ave.

EVENT: This year South Plains residents are asked to donate new baby items to help “fill the baby bus.” The donated items will be on display during the shower and the community is encouraged to bring baby items to the shower. Monetary donations will also be accepted.

The Lubbock Chapter of the Stork’s Nest helps expectant moms access early and consistent prenatal care, gain education about having the healthiest baby possible and receive new baby items in return.

The Stork’s Nest is a national cooperative project of the March of Dimes and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc., and the Combest Center, a nonprofit nurse managed primary health care center operated by the TTUHSC School of Nursing.
