Community-wide baby shower in Jonesboro

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Junior Auxiliary of Jonesboro is hosting a community baby shower this week.

The non-profit women's volunteer organization is collecting donations November 6-11 to benefit the Pregnancy Resource Center of Jonesboro.

"We're going to stock their baby room. We're going to provide baby wipes and onesies and formula and diapers," said service project chair Jessica Reed.

The project includes the baby shower and "Mentoring Mamas", a series of educational seminars and activities for pregnant women. "We're going to do to things like have manicures and pedicures, but we're also going to throw in teaching them how to do baby massages," said Reed. Other class topics include CPR training and car seat safety.
