Rebekah’s Closet is an outreach mission to young families in the area seeking support providing for their infants and toddlers.
Hours are by appointment only; parents must call the church office at 413-532-1483 in order to arrange for one. No walk-ins will be taken. On the day and time of appointment, they can come to the door at 300 Appleton Street, ring the bell, and be welcomed into “the closet”.
There they can receive diapers (sizes premie to size 6), wipes, clothing (sizes premie to 24 months), toys, books and furniture as they become available. A parent in need may come once a month with a reference letter from a social service agency, church, doctor’s office or school. There is no charge.
The people of the United Congregational Church support this ministry through monthly special offerings and gifts. Paula Thouin, Rebekah’s Closet Coordinator, with the help from several dedicated volunteers, keep Rebekah’s Closet well stocked and running smoothly. Other churches, organizations and individuals have made generous donations to the mission.
Thank you all who bring their heart and lend a hand to Rebekah’s Closet!
