Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation will host “It Takes a Village Community Baby Shower” on April 15 at 10 a.m., to help alleviate the financial burden for up to 25 new or expectant parents.
Organizers are asking the community for donations. Needed items include diapers, diaper bags, baby thermometers, pacifiers, receiving blankets, baby clothes and more. There is a compiled Amazon Wish List that can ship the items directly to the Roy Haynes Recreation Center, 1092 S. Village Ave., in Tampa. Other donations can be dropped off through April 10 at the University Area Community Complex, 14013 N. 22nd St., in Tampa, where the baby shower will take place. Donors are asked to first call Carrie Albano at 813-836-1839 to arrange a drop-off time.
Expectant or recent parents who want to participate in the shower must register by calling Carrie Albano at 813-836-1830 or Sara Roman at 813-558-5212, ext. 403. The deadline to register is April 10.
