Each year during Lent we host a baby shower to benefit Our Place of Manchester. Our Place is run by New Hampshire Catholic Charities and they assist pregnant and parenting teens and young adults from the point of pregnancy through their child's third year. We have been running this baby shower for many years and I love helping them because they do such great work and the three women that run Our Place are the kindest, most generous people you will ever meet.
Our Place always provides me with a list of items they especially need and, as always, our students and families overwhelmingly come through for them. In return, I offer them some amazing cake and soda. Mrs. Photiades P'14 and '12 always comes in the morning of the shower and beautifully decorates Campus Ministry. Her daughter Kiersten '12 is on spring break and helped out as well.
These pictures don't do any justice as we got so much more after I took the picture and many people said they would bring in their items on Monday. I will drop the items off on Monday or Tuesday, always a wonderful experience!
Thanks to everyone for their help.
