Operation Shower’s mission is to host joyous baby showers for military families to ease the various stresses of deployment. For military families who are expecting a new baby and are experiencing or have recently experienced deployment, we accomplish our mission through:
- hosting amazing baby showers;
- delivering high-quality products;
- creating a shared experience;
- bringing recognition to military families; and
- working with individuals and companies to provide them an opportunity to show their appreciation and love for military families.
The person/group nominated must (1) have a spouse or partner who is deployed or deploying at some point during her pregnancy; (2) be active duty with a group that is deploying, or (3) have a spouse or partner who was injured during deployment. If you would like a group to be considered for a group shower when Operation Shower is in your area, please fill out the form here. If you would like to nominate an individual to attend a group shower, please fill out the information for the person you are nominating. Once we receive your information, we will review the information and determine if there is match to a shower in your area and will contact you in advance if a shower becomes a possibility. We are working to shower as many families as we can, but there are no guarantees to being included in an event.
WHAT IS A GROUP SHOWER?
A group shower is a great event! It is a party pure and simple! Operation Shower’s goal with a group shower is to show our appreciation to expectant mothers who are experiencing or have recently experienced deployment during their pregnancies. After gathering donations, Operation Shower prepares a Shower in a Box for each mom-to-be who will be attending the shower. The Showers in a Box are then delivered by the Operation Shower Team at an amazing baby shower (as that is what these women deserve) for the entire group of moms. It is a time for moms-to-be to gather with other moms in a similar situation and to celebrate the babies on the way! To learn how to Sponsor a group shower, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT IS A SHOWER IN A BOX?
A Shower in a Box is just what it sounds like — an entire baby shower in one box. The Shower in a Box is based on a typical baby registry and we work to provide every category of gift for every mom-to-be so she is truly off to a great start with her new baby. Operation Shower works hard to provide as many wonderful items for the mom-to-be and new baby as possible. There are many ways to contribute to the group showers and Showers in a Box:
- Donate money to help us fund the showers;
- Become a Sponsor of Operation Shower; (see our current sponsors here)
- Help fill the Showers in a Box by donating new gifts for the mom or baby (or donate an entire Operation Shower – Kit) ;
- Join with a group and gather donations; and
