The West Virginia University at Parkersburg nursing program is partnering with the Riverhawk Food Pantry to host a Dr. Seuss-themed baby shower for Kelly’s Closet. The baby shower is open to the community and will be held on Monday, April 15 from 12:15 – 4:00 p.m. in room 2539 on the second floor of the main campus.

The baby shower is a celebration of a new arrival on campus – an infant simulator named Blake – which was recently gifted to the college’s nursing program by the WVU at Parkersburg Foundation.

During the event, students, faculty and staff in the nursing program will be collecting monetary donations and other much-needed items for Kelly’s Closet. The local nonprofit organization provides clothing, shoes and backpacks for children in foster or kinship care in the Mid-Ohio Valley from newborn to 18 years of age.

Guests will also enjoy refreshments and tours of the college’s newly renovated state-of-the-art nursing simulation labs, as well as the opportunity to see WVU Parkersburg nursing students actively participating in simulations throughout the event.

Kelly’s Closet is currently in need of the following items:
• Diapers of any size
• Underwear (sizes 2T – adult XL)
• Socks (crew or footie) for children and adults
• Leggings, capris and shorts (female, sizes newborn – adult XL)
• Sweats, athletic pants and shorts (male, sizes newborn – adult XL)
• Bras (training bras – sports bras, all sizes)
• Pajamas (male and female, newborn – adult XL)
• Athletic shoes and sneakers (sizes 2 youth – 9 adult, especially larger sizes for teens)
