The Texas-Sized Baby Shower presented by the Pregnancy Help Center of Lufkin is underway.

This annual event runs through the end of February. This is an awesome opportunity for you to help families in need.

Since 1984, the Pregnancy Help Center of Lufkin has educated, equipped, and enabled families to make positive choices that support a healthy parenting journey. They offer life mentoring, prenatal and parenting education, and material assistance during pregnancy and up to the child’s 3rd birthday.

Parenting can be a tough job and it is important that parents have positive, encouraging and helpful influences to help them along the way.  The Pregnancy Help Center of Lufkin is there to be that influence for any expectant or parenting family.

All their services are free of charge.
