Each year Warren First UMC collects baby items for inclusion in layettes that are assembled by the church’s United Methodist Women. (The 2019 Layette project collected 220 layettes.) This project allows the church to help new moms in our community who do not have suitable clothing for their newborn children. The layettes are assembled soon after Mother’s Day and delivered to local hospitals, clinics, and social agencies who determine the needs and distribute the layettes to new moms.
Each layette consists of (size 0-12 months) 1 sleeper, 1 pair booties or socks, 1 sweater set or playsuit, 1 receiving blanket, 1 bib, 6 disposable diapers, 1 afghan or crib blanket, 1 onesie, and 1 bottle. A pack-n-play is located in the church narthex (area outside the sanctuary)in which to place your donations. You may want to take advantage of sales in progress now and/or start knitting, crocheting, or sewing items for next year’s collection.
