Baby Ministry – We are all aware of the cost of bringing a new baby home from the hospital, even the bare necessities are a huge expense. New babies need so many things! We have been made aware there is a great need for maternity kits for low income families. St. Nicholas is hoping you will once again help us support those in need by donating gently used or even new items to help make up these kits. Below is a list of items that make up each kit. Many of the items can be purchased at the dollar store such as soap, powder, baby bottles, bibs socks etc. Little ones outgrow their clothes so quickly as well as baby seats, high chairs, toys etc. and can be passed down when no longer needed.  Each kit contains: 1 knitted blanket, 1 cotton blanket, 3 receiving blankets, 2 dozen pampers (new born),   4 sleepers (0-6 mos.), 4 sleepers (6-12 mos.), 3 bath towels, 4-6 face clothes, 3 pkg. baby soap, 1 box Q-tips, 1 baby shampoo, 1 Vaseline, 1 baby powder, 1 pkg. baby wipes, 1 bottle peroxide, 1 bag of cotton balls, 1 baby lotion, 3 baby bottles, 3 bibs, 2 sweater sets, 4 outfits (0-6 mos.),4 outfits (6-12 mos.) They also give out soothers, small toys, hats, mittens, socks, shoes, coats, and teethers when they have them available. The Parents and Tots program has set up a baby bathtub on the table in the Narthex where you may leave any donations. If you prefer to make a small donation, you can give your donation to Carol Bowser or Charlotte Johnson. They will be more than happy to shop for you! Thanking you for your support in this ministry.
