MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Saturday, Tennessee State Representative G.A. Hardaway gave new parents an early Christmas in Memphis.
He hosted "Merry Christmas, Baby" a community baby shower in Orange Mound.
There was first a virtual session that got parents up to speed on infant CPR, getting a free college degree in Tennessee, car seat safety, and more..
"Memphis has a need and we have a lot of people in poverty so anything we can do to help our babies survive and thrive is a great thing," said Shelby County Trustee Regina Morrison Newman.
After the learning, it was time for presents! Parents went to a drive-thru party event at the Benjamin Hooks Library. Here, they got free diapers and goodie bags.
This entire event was free to attend.
