Sweet Babies Charity

SWEET BABIES – The Little School is accepting donations for the Sweet Babies Charity located at St. Mary’s Hospital through December 9. Sweet Babies supplies baby clothing and items to over 60 women and their babies each month.  Please see this note from Barb, who coordinates this organization:

Hi Little School!

Again, we are asking for gently used clothing up to 5T.   Other items needed are baby wipes, diapers in all sizes up to size 6, baby wash, hooded bath towels for babies and teething rings.

We are more than doubling the number of women we help through the clinic where the mothers come in for their wellness visits.  We are going from around 200 to next year helping about 480. And we are on track to give away 900 bags to women leaving the hospital with their newborn, and 325-350 pack n’plays – a record number for Sweet Babies!  Even though you are small, ALL items help us in some way. So God bless. And thank you!
