Letter: Sincere thanks for ‘baby shower’FirstChoice Clinic would like to thank a whole host of individuals and groups from the Fargo-Moorhead area for their support of the seventh annual “Valley’s Largest Baby Shower,” a month-long effort to collect diapers, wipes, clothes and other newborn necessities. This event was sponsored and promoted by radio station KFNW and area Hornbacher’s. We thank both for their efforts and generosity.
Thank you also to the many volunteers who collected the items at the stores and delivered them to FirstChoice clinic during January. We appreciate and are blessed by you.
Most importantly, we want to thank the community for their generous support of this event. We estimate the drive generated diapers and baby items worth more than $5,900. The donated items collected will be distributed to clients in need through FirstChoice Clinic’s “Earn While You Learn” program, which helps vulnerable mothers and fathers learn skills to help them be the best parents possible, ensuring the health and well-being of their babies.
On behalf of the families we serve, we extend our deepest thanks to the Fargo-Moorhead community for this wonderful show of support for FirstChoice Clinic.
Frei is executive director, FirstChoice Clinic.
