Baby Day Collection
Each Mother's Day baby bottles are handed out to be filled with loose change. On Father's Day the bottles and new and gently used baby items are collected for struggling moms and newborns. The money collected is developed into a large project for shelters and foster care systems serving infants locally.
How can I help? In May, handing out baby bottles at the doors of the church. In June, donating items, collecting bottles filled with coins and baby items at the church doors and moving them to the Parish Hall for sorting and delivery to service agencies.
