MARTINEZ, Calif. – The 19th annual Grandma Baby Shower was held this month by the Priscilla Circle ladies of the First Congregational Church, Martinez. A big collection of baby items – and some “fun” pieces – are to benefit the Newborn Infant Project at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center (CCRMC).

“We enjoy doing this project every year, especially since our own children are no longer infants,” stated Betty Holt, chairman of this year’s event.

Individuals and groups donate baby items to the project. The CCRMC Auxiliary Volunteers assemble layettes containing a receiving blanket, onesie, sleeper, digital thermometer, hat and any other extras that have been donated. The nurses give one to each mother as she takes her newborn home.

“We do appreciate all donations as there are approximately 200 babies born each month,” said Deloris McDonald, publicity chairman.

For further information, call the CCRMC Gift Shop at (925) 370-5818 or the volunteer coordinator at (925) 370-5440, or email Rhonda.Smith@hsd.cccounty.us.
