This Mother’s Day weekend, Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson will be working with Saint Luke’s Cushing Hospital and other organizations to host a community baby shower.

The event will take place from 1-4 p.m. Saturday in the Anthony Elementary School gymnasium, 570 Evergreen St.

During the free event, Cushing Safe Sleep instructors and other community affiliates will educate pregnant women, new mothers and members of their support systems about safe sleep, smoking cessation, breastfeeding support and other subjects related to babies’ health.

Thompson became involved in this event as a board member of Center for Research and Infant Birth Survival.

At this event, at least 20 cribs and sleep sacks will be given to expectant or new mothers in need as long as they go through all of the education booths.
