Mission Statement

Our mission is to help as many needy babies and infants as possible in our community, by providing them with basic necessities after they are born. Due to the pandemic, we have been unable to hold our regular meetings at our usual location. If you have items to donate, please contact Brenda at 843-209-2981 or Pat at pat.nin.17@gmail.com.

Description

Newborns in Need makes and donates baby gowns, blankets, and other essential baby items to hospitals and other agencies that provide for premature and newborn infants. Our Charleston chapter donates to MUSC Children's Care Clinic, Fetter Healthcare Network, Florence Crittenton, Lowcountry Crisis Pregnancy Center (Charleston & Orangeburg), Lowcountry Orphan Relief, Mt. Pleasant Roper Hospital, MUSC NICU, New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, NC, Our Lady of Mercy Outreach Center, Roper St. Francis Hospital in West Ashley, and Summerville Medical Center. Many of the babies we are helping come from below the poverty line and do not have adequate clothing or blankets. 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. 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. Our volunteers also make bereavement items.
