Yesterday was AMAZING! The American Red Cross, along with our partners, hosted the Women Warriors Baby Shower at Jefferson Barracks. We celebrated 100 new military mothers - each receiving an extraordinary array of gifts and supplies thanks to generous Red Cross donors. Car seats, strollers, diapers, clothes...you name it. All going to military mothers who sacrifice for all of us. Check out these pictures from the event...
