HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. – Babies are delightful. They’re also expensive, starting even before they’re born.
Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation hopes to alleviate the financial burden for new or expectant parents and is asking the community for help.
The It Takes a Village Community Baby Shower will provide baby items for up to 25 new or expecting parents.
The baby shower will be April 15, but organizers are soliciting donations. Needed items include diapers, diaper bags, baby thermometers, pacifiers, receiving blankets, baby clothes, and more.
