Event to provide dresses to girls affected by flood

Hope for Homecoming, a community-sponsored homecoming evening dresses drive and giveaway to benefit high school girls affected by the recent flooding, is being held this week.

While more than 250 dresses have been collected so far, new or gently-used formal and semi-formal dresses are still needed and can be dropped off through Sept. 16 at Soiree, Bella Bella, Bustle, Currie, Head Over Heels, Hey Penelope and Swap Boutique in Baton Rouge; Mingle in Port Allen; and H Kyle Boutique in Gonzales.

The dress giveaway is scheduled for 3-6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18, at the St. Joseph’s Academy Arts Center, 2980 Kleinert Ave., Baton Rouge.

Any girl in Baton Rouge and the surrounding community affected by the flooding can participate in the free event. No registration is necessary.

Local interior design firm and contributing sponsor of Hope for Homecoming, Town Interiors, will create an inviting pop-up boutique setting. Contributing sponsor Erin Guedry, of Erin Guedry Photography, will take pictures as each girl finds “the evening dresses uk.” The girls also will be offered discounted makeup sessions with sponsor Verde Beauty.

“We want to help the young ladies of our community who have been through so much. We want to give them a special day of glamour and pampering,” said Sarah Wampler, owner of Soiree, the organizing sponsor of Hope for Homecoming.

Community 'Baby Shower' to benefit Nurse-Family Partnership Program

A community "Baby Shower" to collect new and unused baby items for families in need will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22, at the East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, 7711 Goodwood Blvd., Baton Rouge.

The shower is being hosted by the Nurse-Family Partnership program of Capital Area Human Services. The program offers home visiting services by registered nurses and licensed social workers to low-income first-time mothers, giving them the information and support they need to make healthy decisions. The visits begin during pregnancy and continue for two years following birth. NFP intervention has been associated with improvements in maternal health, child health and economic security.

Educational sessions will also be held at the event to share information about a variety of health, safety and wellness topics along with community resource booths provided by local agencies. The event is free and open to the public. To register to attend or for agencies that would like a booth, emailAngela.august@selu.edu (include name, agency name if applicable, phone number and number attending).

"The NFP program’s outreach activities are important to increase awareness about valuable resources available in our community that can promote a healthy pregnancy, safety and family well-being,” said Dr. Jan Kasofsky, executive director of Capital Area Human Services.
