Waynesville R-VI School District’s Parents as Teachers and Waynesville Early Childhood Center participated at the Bundles and Boots Baby Shower last Saturday hosted by the United Services Organization Fort Leonard Wood. This event was for pregnant service members, pregnant spouses of service members and new (6 months postpartum or less) mothers. Due to overwhelming community support, baby gifts valued at $55,695 were donated. This allowed each of the 90 guests in attendance to receive 27 items and additional prizes that were raffled off during the event. Parents as Teachers and WECC were able to donate 90 Sesame Street Beginnings Children’s Book gift bags to all participants, as well as share with the guests about the Parents As Teachers and other WECC programs.
