Operation Shower was excited to join the Mahan Foundation on August 5, 2020 for a summer virtual shower! One benefit of a virtual shower was that we were able to shower 20 moms from across the country – including military moms from Washington, Hawaii, Texas, Colorado, North Carolina, Florida, Maryland and Maine! We loved connecting these expectant military families with others from across the United States!
We were honored to have Kandi and Hunter Mahan in attendance from their home – with special appearances by their children who helped with the games! We are so appreciative that the Mahans were able to help us reach more military moms this year with a special baby shower as everyone was still socially distancing and not able to be together in person.
We also were joined by Elisha Beach as a special guest to remind the moms-to-be to not forget to take care of themselves as well and ask for help! We all can use that reminder!
The “Oh, Happy Day” themed shower featured more games and surprises and gifts from companies such as Hazen & Co, Noodle & Boo and the Mahn Foundation as well! Thanks to all of the support, we know it made bringing baby home even more joyful in a year where it was so needed.
We are thankful to continue this work and hope the moms felt as loved and appreciated as they are – and that Oh, Happy Day was how they will always remember their shower!
We were honored to know that the Mahans also loved the event and be a part of continuing to honor military families:
“We were so thrilled to see how Operation Shower has been able to successfully pivot to a virtual format so swiftly while still providing such a special experience celebrating these expecting military moms. It was truly wonderful to still be able to personally connect with the moms, listen to their stories, shower them with gifts, and see their smiles like we would at an in-person shower. There’s clearly nothing that can hold the Operation Shower team back and we’re so happy to have been able to be a part of another joyous showering of these much-deserving military families!” – Hunter & Kandi Mahan, The Mahan Foundation
