Three Western Washington Chapters of National Charity League, Inc., including the Mercer Island Evergreen chapter, partnered with Operation Homefront on Oct. 14 in an “American Baby Celebration – Salute to Cute” baby shower at Seattle Center’s Fisher Pavilion.
Operation Homefront provides support to active duty military servicewomen and military spouses. The baby shower was the largest to date for Operation Homefront.
The Seattle Center Foundation, celebrating its 50th Anniversary, provided the venue for 325 women, some of whom have already delivered their babies, including several sets of twins.
Charity League members helped the military families pick out items, served lunch, watched children and loaded cars.
