The Baby Shower is a fund-raiser but with a twist, we are asking guests attending the event, to bring a gift of baby blankets, wraps, or cot sheet sets (instead of the usual baby shower presents like rattles and clothing). Alternatively, people can support the funding of bigger items such as cots, prams, car seats all cash donations of $2 and over are tax deductible. Pregnancy Care Coffs Harbour is a registered charity, and can provide tax receipts to anyone wishing to donate to the cause.
Pregnancy Care Coffs Harbour has been operating in this community for the past 18 years and provides a range of support services for mothers with pregnancy challenges. Much of this help is undertaken out of the public eye. Mrs. Mash said, one way we support women and their newborn infants is to provide practical assistance by supplying the baby items they need. Quite often mothers we assist have relocated to our area without anything, or have difficult or premature births where specialist care is required Ms Mash said.
