Social Work Club Hosts 'Baby Shower' For Life Crisis Center

SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University’s Social Work Club is sponsoring a “Baby Shower” to support area children and the Life Crisis Center 7 p.m. Monday, November 24, in the colonnade of the Teacher Education and Technology Center (TETC).  Faculty, staff, students and the community are invited to bring “gifts” or monetary donations.

Suggested new items for babies and toddlers include clothes, toys and supplies, such as baby wipes, formula, diapers and pull-ups.  Attendees will also be able to purchase Cookie Lee jewelry during the event.  All proceeds will benefit the Life Crisis Center.

“The center provides a valuable service to Salisbury and the surrounding area by assisting families experiencing domestic issues, and many of the children need basic supplies,” said Dr. Peg McGuire, who advises the 20-member Social Work club.  “We have already had a wonderful response from several local retailers, such as Walmart and Target, and sincerely hope this event will yield an exceptional supply of needed items from our students and community members.”

Donations are also being accepted at the Social Work Office, located in the TETC Room 254.  For more information, e-mail Geneva Thrasher at gt23804@students.salisbury.edu
