EL PASO- A community-wide baby shower is planned for tonight to help expecting mothers prepare for motherhood.
The event is hosted by the March of Dimes and Miss El Paso Texas and the Miss El Paso Teen Texas and will take place at Abraham Chavez Theater at 7:00 p.m.
The event will allow pregnant women to receive free prenatal education as a preventative measure from birth defects and premature births. Along with the free education participants will receive free baby items.
March of Dimes is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature births, and infant mortality.
March of Dimes and the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc has collaborated to form a local Prenatal Incentive Education Program geared to our local community named Storks Nest.
