Local nonprofit Passion 4 K.I.D.S recently hosted a baby shower for military moms-to-be at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa. While some of the expectant mothers are enlisted and others have spouses who are currently deployed, all of the 120 expectant mothers who attended are currently stationed at Camp Pendleton. The day’s celebration included a buffet lunch, gifts for the newborn such as cribs or strollers, and other gifts given specifically to pamper the new mom. All gifts were donated by local businesses or individuals. Passion 4 K.I.D.S founder Lisa Van Kessler said, “We are honored to help the families of our military heroes. When we reflect on our mission to help kids in desperate situations, we can think of no children that are in greater desperate situations than those whose parent is in a battle zone across the world. We believe it is our privilege and duty to support these families.” For more information visit www.passion4kids.com.
