Having a baby is difficult for couples who have the physical support of their spouses in the room, but for thousands of women this isn't an option as their husbands are overseas serving in the US military. Operation Shower recognizes and honors mamas and mamas-to-be whose husbands are stationed abroad by providing them with baby showers to celebrate their pending arrivals.
Through the site, Operation Shower gathers baby goods donated by individuals or companies around the country. It then throws unit-wide showers, where groups of expectant moms each receive a surprise "shower in a box" filled with baby gear, skincare products for moms and babies, baby clothing, shoes, and room decor products. Each box is then packed with festive paper and ribbons.
