The 56th Annual Layette Shower will held on Sunday December 4, 2011 at St. Christopher's Parish in Willow Glen, at 2278 Curtner Ave, San Jose, 95125-- DSJ parishes will gather together to bring thousands of baby clothes, blankets and other items that will be dispersed through the public health nurses to needy mothers and their newborns.
