The Baby Closet continues to reach out in our community to serve families in need with children newborn to age 5. Several families visited the Baby Closet numerous times during 2014 for clothing, diapers, wipes and miscellaneous large items. We continue to receive referrals from numerous community organizations on a regular basis. We served 206 families with 356 children in 2014.
A $1,500 grant was received from ABCCR. This grant was used to purchase diapers, wipes, formula and clothing. We were able to increase diapers and wipes to 15 per child once a month. This was an increase of 3 per month. Formula is given out as needed per family.
We have received monetary donations, clothing, baby food, formula and miscellaneous items from our church families and the community. Several families we serve donate back to the Baby Closet to keep our shelves stocked. We are so grateful for these donations.
The Baby Closet is open on Monday from 9am-11am, Wednesday from 5pm-7pm, and Thursday from 1pm-3pm.
