I have volunteered for two baby showers. Not only was it fun to wrap all of the presents and see what the moms were being given, but it was also amazing to see the moms happy faces when they opened their presents. Quite a bit of the moms are married to lower enlisted military. They are away from friends and family, and most will not have a baby shower. This is the only way to help them get the items that they really need.

I feel that if we didn't have this venue for them, most mothers would not be able to have the basics for their new babies. I am so grateful that there is an Operation Showers of Appreciation. This is a great organization and I love that I can volunteer.

About 2 years ago, I learned that I was pregnant for the first time. It was a mix of joy and fear, as we calculated the months and realized my husband would be in Afghanistan and not meet our son until he was nearly 4 months old. We were also struggling financially, as I had been unable to find a job since being stationed in southern California. A good friend told me about Operation Showers of Appreciation, and I have to say, I was truly amazed at the generosity and love these ladies provided for me and many other military families aboard Camp Pendleton. The gift of a car seat, bath tub, and much more, helped ease our anxiety of having everything we need to support our little one. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage more people to donate and volunteer so that more spouses can benefit from this thoughtful organization. There are MANY military families that struggle to make ends meet, despite their hard work and sacrifices.
