“Rebekah’s Closet” Update!
Rebekah’s Closet for young mothers has been very active since opening our mezzanine doors to the community in January 2008. Since then we have helped hundreds of young moms and their families with baby clothing, diapers, blankets, strollers, toys, and furniture.
Along with the closet’s success has come an urgent need for more donated items. Our selections are running low. Badly needed are all types of baby and child supplies, in good condition, such as cribs, infant furniture, fall and winter clothing, blankets, tubs, and toys. Since many of you have already donated, perhaps you can ask friends and neighbors to help.
We also want to thank the Outreach Committee for sharing teen dance profits so we can buy expendables such as diapers and wipes. Many of the families we help cannot even afford these basic infant necessities. Finally, anyone who has a spare hour or two a month is welcome to help. We are open every Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm. Call the church office at 532-1483 for details.
