Do you know someone who needs a little sunshine? The Sunshine Committee is here to help celebrate a newborn or in a time of need. If you (or someone you know) are pregnant or need assistance, please let us know! If possible, it helps to setup your preferences before the baby is born or a surgery takes place. When a baby is born, we like to know: Parents’ and siblings’ names, Address and best contact number. Any meal preferences (takeout, etc)? Allergies or dislikes? When approximately would you like meals to begin being delivered (obviously, you may not know before the baby is born.) :) Also, please let us or another CECA member know when the baby is born so we can share the special details in our newsletter. We like to know baby’s gender, name, weight, length, and any other fun stats that you’d like to share with us! Thank you for helping us to help you! Wei Ni Kaplan
