Catholic Charities needs baby items, suggests parishes hold baby showers

Catholic Charities is calling on parishes to collect items for the mothers and babies served by the agency’s Mother-Infant Care Program throughout the month of May, but especially on May 12, which is Mother’s Day. Parishes also are encouraged to host “baby showers” to collect the items.

The Mother-Infant Care Program offers a six-week education program for single women and families who are expecting a baby. The agency provides case management services and baby items for those who complete the program. Much of its work is supported by The Queen’s Daughters women’s group and by private donations from parishes and individuals.

Needed items include baby wipes, diapers, bottles, bibs, lotions, shampoos, bottle brushes and onesies. In addition, the program needs larger items, such as strollers, cribs and high chairs. New or clean, gently used clothing would also be appreciated.

Donations may be dropped off at the agency, 2911 S. Fourth St., or can be picked up. Call 637-9786 to arrange for pick up.
