What is a “layette”? Essentially, it is a “baby shower in a bag!” It contains the basic items needed for baby for the first couple months of life. Once these items have been donated and received at our parish, Baby Layette Love will pick them up, sort them and put them into big bags (50-55 layette items) and will deliver them with love and prayers for a new family through the Crisis Pregnancy Centre.
We are collecting these items for a new baby in need:
· Unscented diaper wipes
· Diaper cream
· Baby shampoo
· Face cloths/wash cloths
· Size one diapers
· Bottles; new & in package
· Baby blankets
· Baby body wash
· Burp cloths
· Teething toy; new in package
· Baby toys/books
· Soothers; new & in package
· Onesies (0-3 months)
· Sleepers (0-3 months)
· Baby socks/shoes
· Baby hats (0-3 months)
· Hooded bath towels
*** Clothing & Blankets can be new, homemade, or gently used (no stains or holes). ***
Our goal is to collect enough baby items so that Baby Layette Love can use them to create layettes for a few families in need! Can you help by donating one or two items?
· We will be accepting newborn baby items at the church on the first 2 weekends of October.
· The items may be left in the specially marked, “Baby Layette Love” bin.
· Due to storage constraints, we cannot accept any other baby items other than those listed above.
If you would like to donate other baby items not listed here or for more information, please ask the office for a Baby Layette Love pamphlet or search Facebook for: “Baby layette love and etc”. The page shows exactly what this organization does, what this project means to them & the families touched by these gifts.
Note - Any monetary donations over $10 may receive a tax receipt. Cheques should be made out to: "Maranatha Niverville". On the envelope, please write "for Baby Layette Love."
