Mary's Cradle

Want to Help?

 

We can always use donations of gently used or new infant clothing of all sizes (we accept Preemie to size 4T). We are always in need of diapers (size Newborn to 5). We especially need cribs, high chairs, walkers, exersaucers, swings, playpens, and bassinets. We like to give items out in great condition. We were blessed to give out 84 cribs in 2012 and could not have done so without the kindness of others. We greatly appreciate those who have given generously to this precious ministry!

 

 

Mary’s Cradle shared 252 layette gift baskets for needy families in southern West Virginia and Southwestern Virginia in 2012. Each basket contains essential items for their newborn.

 

 

Any of these items for the Newborn Layettes would be greatly appreciated:

 

Baby wash/Shampoo

Baby lotion

Diapers

Wipes

Socks

Undershirts

Caps/Hats

Receiving blankets

Handmade blankets

Towels and/or wash cloths

Pacifiers

Bottles

Bottle brush

Bibs

Infant toys

Sleepers*

Onesies*

Gowns*

Outfits*

*clothes can be 0-3 months, 3-6 months

 

In each Newborn Layette basket there is a “new mom gift bag” to bless the  mother.  If you, your church, your circle, or unit would like to assist us in extending this blessing we included a list below of the items often placed inside.

These gift bags reflect the individuals or groups who donate the items, and all are greatly appreciated.  Some bags are handmade totes while others are gift bags purchased at stores. Some include small prayer notes that let the young mother know someone has prayed for her family. All of them include either a Bible or devotion book. They do not need to look any certain way, they are a reflection and they let the mother know that someone cares about her.

 

 

Supplies for New Mom Gift Bags:

Shampoo/Conditioner

Toothpaste

Toothbrush

Deodorant

Soap

Lotion

Hairbrush and/or Comb

Bible (we like to put one in every gift bag)

[Any other items like fingernail clippers, gifts, wash clothes, etc. are great to include as well]
