Household shower will give newly housed families a fresh start

Tuesday, April 19, 6 p.m., Summit Hills Country Club, Crestview Hills, Ky.

Everyone knows the tradition of giving household showers for new couples: Family and friends give essentials for starting a home. The Welcome House Outreach is holding just such an event, but with a twist.

The Annual Spring Shower started out in people’s homes and has grown to more than 200 attendees at a local venue. Guests are asked to take gifts, including items such as household cleaning supplies, bedding, towels, mops and brooms.

The twist? The recipients aren’t a bride and groom, but families moving out of transitional housing, such as shelters, into their own homes.
The evening of giving will include food and drinks. Personal stylist Nora Fink will be the speaker.
