Do you have a youth group, corporate group or other group of caring individuals who would like to help Bundles of Love Charity, but you don't want to sew and you wouldn’t know what to do with a crochet hook or a pair of knitting needles?
No problem! You can help! We are in great need of hygiene kits for our newborn bundles and it's as easy as 1-2-3!
1) Hold a drive to collect baby care items (or gather funds to purchase in bulk)
Basic kits include: 10 diapers (size 1 or newborn)
1 bottle baby wash (10 to 16 oz.)
1 travel pack of baby wipes (80 to 100 wipes)
2) Gather your volunteers to help pack these items into kits for our bundles.
Package soap in a sealed bag (such as a newspaper sleeve, tied with a knot), or a quart- size sealed ziploc type bag.
Count diapers into stacks of 10.
Assemble diapers, soap, and baby wipes in a bag (such as grocery store type plastic bag or clear 2-gallon sized zipper-top bag). Secure bag.
Package kits in boxes for delivery.
3) Contact us at 952-808-6882 or firstname.lastname@example.org to determine the closest drop-off point and arrange a time to deliver the assembled kits for us to include in our monthly newborn bundles.
We use more than 300 infant hygiene kits each month in our infant "bundles", so your help is greatly appreciated!

Mission Statement Bundles of Love Charity is a volunteer driven nonprofit organization that partners with community service agencies to assist Minnesota families in need by providing handmade baby clothing, bedding and basic care items for their newborns. Vision Statement Our vision is to gather communities to support parents and newborns. We offer peace of mind for families and provide important, essential and practical supplies to show that someone cares.
Volunteer groups meet monthly to sew, knit and crochet essential clothing and blankets for infants. Volunteers also work from their homes as their schedules allow. Work group meetings are currently held in the New Brighton, Burnsville, Minnetonka, Plymouth, Andover/Ham Lake, Rochester, Chatfied, Winona, Houston, and St. Charles areas.
This is a grassroots organization, started in 1999 and became a Minnesota Nonprofit in 2001. We also need dedicated leaders to help us as we grow. Many skills are needed, from fundraising, publicity, marketing, publishing, to additional work group leaders.
