HOME > MILITARY MOMS BABY SHOWER

Military Moms Baby Shower

The Military Moms Baby Shower began in 2014 as the vision and passion of Lindsey Jackson who, at the time, was pregnant with the Jacksons’ first child. The Jacksons had moved to Tampa for Vincent’s NFL career, far away from their families and established network of friends, much like many military families are forced to do when orders change or deployments occur. Lindsey realized that many young military families were expecting a baby in a place where they didn’t have the support system that most first-time families enjoy. The annual shower provides these military families with an experience they might not receive otherwise, as many are stationed far away from family and friends who would traditionally host a baby shower for them. At the event, military moms are able to meet one another and establish connections that provide support to them and their families moving forward.

Themed each year as a Sunday brunch, 40 expecting or recently delivered military moms are invited to receive bundles of items to help them care for their newborn. Moms are either active duty or spouse/partner of active duty military personnel stationed at MacDill Air Force Base and local Coast Guard Air Stations. Best-selling child development book authors and parenting consultants, Moms On Call, are always present to speak words of encouragement to the young parents and answer questions about newborn care, sleep scheduling, and more. Every family in attendance takes home diaper bags full of essentials, as well as larger items such as a car seat, stroller, high chair, play yard and walker. In 2018,the foundation hosted our 5th Annual Military Moms Baby Shower, presented by Chicco and the DeBartolo Family Foundation, where almost $125,000 worth of items were gifted to families. In total over five years, the Jackson in Action 83 Foundation has gifted more than $411,000 to young military families to help them welcome their babies.
