USO, What to Expect and Target present Special Delivery in Cheyenne, Wyoming
The USO and What to Expect are partnering for a seventh year to host baby showers for military moms-to-be around the globe. Heidi Murkoff, the best-selling author of the “What to Expect” book series and founder of the What to Expect Foundation hosts each event in conjunction with a local USO center. USO Denver was thrilled to have the opportunity to bring this program to 68 new moms and moms-to-be in the Cheyenne, Wyoming area on May 14th.
Combining traditional baby shower games with a Q&A session with Heidi, the showers provide a touch of home for new moms and moms-to-be who are often away from their families, friends and support networks during their pregnancies. Target continues to support the Special Delivery program, contributing gift cards to every attendee gift bag, which includes items for parent and baby. Also, each attendee received a personally signed book donated by Heidi and the opportunity for hugs and photos together. Speaking of photos, we’d like to thank Brian and Sheryl our volunteer photographers provided by Task Force: ISO for helping us capture this event and all of the fun memories. All of the photos we’ve gathered from this event can be found at this link.
Over 10,000 military spouses and expectant active-duty parents have been served through this program since it was launched in 2013. In 2018, the Special Delivery Program hosted 58 events across three continents – 35 showers, 17 reunions and six showers for expecting fathers.
