Benevilla Family Resource Center hosts baby shower

Free community event


The Benevilla Family Resource Center (FRC) Program is  hosting a free “Community Baby Shower” 10 a.m. - noon, Thursday, May 19, at  Rio Vista Recreation Center, 8866 W. Thunderbird Road.

The event is for expectant moms and moms with babies 6 months and younger plus one guest. Admission is free, but capacity is limited to the first 200 people.

There will be shower gifts, prizes and free refreshments will be served. The FRC team will be available with community resources and educational information for the parents. They will also be distributing free size two diapers while supplies last.

“It is disheartening to see so many young families still struggling right now due to the pandemic. It is our goal to provide expectant and young moms fun and stress-free access to information and services helping them prepare their children for success in school and in life,”  Emma Celaya, family support coordinator said. 

The Family Resource Center (“FRC”) has been a Benevilla program since 2009 when Benevilla received a grant from First Things First, the state board, funded by the tobacco tax, which promotes early childhood development and health. FRC offers free, bilingual services and programs serving area families raising children 0 to 5 years old throughout the NW Maricopa County area at convenient community sites. Resource specialists link parents to community services, answer questions, and help complete applications for AHCCCS and DES.
