On Sunday, August 24th from 3-6PM at James G. Atkinson Memorial Park, La Leche League of Glassboro will be hosting the 2008 World Walk for Breastfeeding. (You don't really have to walk, nor must you be a breastfeeding mother!) It is a family gathering and fundraiser event for the group which covers operating costs and allows the group to supply breastfeeding mothers with helpful materials. LLL helps mothers every day by supporting them through the breastfeeding years with mother-to-mother support from volunteers.
There will be things to buy such as clothing and books for every age, and many silent auction items. Some are baby-related but most are general items such as food, gift cards to many stores, tickets to local attractions, gift certificates for salon services, etc. If you or someone you know is expecting or has an infant, this is a great opportunity to bid on great baby items at less than retail prices.
There will also be free food donated by local businesses! It is a kid-friendly place with 2 playgrouds, restrooms, and ample parking. We will be in the pavilion located near the entrance on Bethel Mill Road (north of the main entrance).
We would love for you to participate. Even if you don't want to bid, come for the food and friends. It is a fun day for everyone.
