March 7th, 2020, Imperfect Yet Do What U Can jumped into the community with its first sponsored event of the year!
We at Imperfect Yet were more than excited to continue a relationship with our 2019 grant recipient, Viola's House.
Our team of awesome women stepped into the White House in South Dallas at 11 am to begin preparations for the baby shower. These women worked all the way up to the time the shower started at 2pm!
At 2 pm we opened the doors to the White House, and to our amazement, we were packed with people! 5 new moms were the gift recipients for the baby shower, and they all had a wonderful time, even their little ones that tagged along too!
IYDWUC was more than excited to organize this event with Viola's House. We love to get into the community and support organizations that are working for change! Imperfect Yet would also like to thank everybody that came to support this event and those that donated gifts to the new moms. Everyone that was apart of this event really made it special for Viola's House! The baby shower was a success and we look forward to having another in the future!
Before we go, IYDWUC would like to spotlight Viola's House, so you know what they are about and how great of an organization they are!
