Herndon, Virginia, July 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Last month, Lincoln Military Housing (LMH), Community Services Departments in San Diego and Hampton Roads teamed up with their local Operation Homefront chapters to host the Star-Spangled Babies Shower events on their respective coasts.  The Star-Spangled Babies program provides baby showers to support service members and their growing families.

"Lincoln Military Housing is honored to partner with Operation Homefront for the annual Star Spangled Baby Shower in San Diego," says Cindy Farless, Community Services Director for the Southwest Navy Region, "It is so special to host this event for our new mommies when so many are away from home, their family, and friends who would be the ones to throw them a baby shower. Lincoln and Operation Homefront host this event to celebrate with all our new mommies with fun games and big prizes. All new mommies left with multiple gift bags full of baby items as well.  The engaging environment allowed these new mommies a chance to meet each other and build new friendships.  We are so thankful to our sponsors who support this event with donations and door prizes." 

Due to deployments and frequent relocation, new and expecting military parents often live far from their extended families and support systems. The Star-Spangled Babies showers provide new and expecting parents with early childhood education tips and a support system, especially when loved ones are far away.

"Partnering with Operation Homefront on this event each year is very special and important to us here at Lincoln Military Housing," said Brooke Scarbrough, Community Services Director for the Mid-Atlantic Region. "We know that many of our moms-to-be will not get the opportunity to celebrate with their loved ones in person, and for many, this will be their only baby shower. We want each mom to feel special and pampered, and hosting the baby shower is a small way in which we can help do this for them." "It is our mission here at Lincoln Military Housing to partner with organizations who have the same values as we do. This event is so special because it provides military families with an opportunity to connect with others in their same situation and learn about the resources available in their community, so they know they are not alone. The joined goal is to build strong, stable and secure military families so that those families may thrive in the communities that the service members work so hard to protect. We are grateful to be a part of an event that supports this goal and our military community."

Each event was attended by 100 new and expecting local moms where they were given access to vendors and organizations that provided much-needed supplies and educational tips for growing military families.
