Sussex Baby ShowerOur Sussex branch held a daylong community “royal baby shower” on March 1 and used the event to collect baby and toddler essentials for Sussex Outreach Services, which helps local families in need. The shower was inspired by England’s current Duke and Duchess of Sussex — better known as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle — who are expecting their first baby this spring.

Our whole team dressed like royals, most wearing dresses accessorized with bold jewelry and gloves — and a tiara, of course. SOS provided the branch with a top 10 list of its most-needed baby and toddler items; diapers, baby food, and snacks ranked high.

The day was full of activities for adults and children. Visitors could guess the birth date and gender of the future royal baby, and kids could guess how many blue and pink jellybeans were in a jar. Treats included cupcakes, sugar cookies, and sherbet punch.
