Description

NEWBORNS IN NEED makes and donates baby gowns, blankets, and other essential baby items to hospitals, homeless shelters and other organizations that provide for premature and newborn infants. All items are donated completely free of any charge. Many of the babies we are helping come from below the poverty line and do not have adequate clothing or blankets. Many of the babies families need clothing and blankets as well. One out of every four babies in this country is born into poverty and the number continues to grow. Over 5 million children are living at, or below, poverty level. Premature and newborn infants represent a large portion of this overwhelming number. Each year thousands of babies are admitted for care in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) in hospitals. Due to the extremely small sizes of these babies, there is a shortage of hospital gowns, t-shirts and sleepers tiny enough for them to wear. Even when premature sizes can be found, they are much more expensive than regular sized clothing. Many of these babies will go home in nothing more than a disposable diaper, those that have a home to go to. It's unfortunate, but sadly true, that some of these precious children will lose their struggle for life and need only one outfit and blanket to be snuggled in. Who will help? In many cases, if we don't help, no one will. These children can't help themselves. God has told us we are to help each other, and we are doing just that. This is an ongoing need. Your donations of time, sewing notions, and money to help alleviate the suffering of tiny helpless babies is greatly needed and appreciated.
