Steps to HOPE hosted its second annual “Rummage for a Reason” on Saturday, April 8, giving new baby clothing, diapers, blankets and other items to new and expectant parents. Over 40 moms, dads, and grandparents were given the opportunity to “shop” for new free baby items for their bundle of joy. A $25 WalMart gift card was given to each of the first 17 families through the door and drawings were held for two new car seats and a new foot spa.
