We sew, knit and crochet baby and preemie items and then distribute these items free of charge to agencies and hospitals in Western NY. We also make, from donated wedding gowns, bereavement sets for the smallest of angels that pass on. NIN volunteers provide care necessities to agencies and hospitals serving premature, ill or impoverished newborns.
Meetings are the 4th Wednesday of the month at The Lockport Public Library, 23 East Ave, Lockport, NY. Come any time between 6:00pm - 8:00pm and stay as long as you like. You can come to a monthly work meeting or make things at home and donate them, your choice.
You don't have to know how to sew, knit, or crochet to be able to help out. There’s fabric to cut, things to tag and sort, deliveries to make, etc. If you really want to help, there is always something for you to do. Visit our Facebook page by searching for Newborns In Need Inc. Western NY Chapter for frequent updates and any changes to the meeting schedule. If you aren't on Facebook or prefer an email update, just let me know.
