At our last meeting while Krystie Scamehorn was cleaning up the leftover Freecycle items, she was approached by Pastor Gus Davies’ wife, Jeneba Davies. Mrs. Davies asked her if our moms may be interested to donate baby-related items to a young couple who are expecting their first son very soon. Mrs. Davies did share with her that this couple is very new to the United States and they are currently unemployed.
Facing parenthood for the first time is already FULL of uncertainties, so you can imagine how much more stressful it might be to move to a new country and be unemployed as you welcome your new little one. The couple has a crib and a mattress, but beyond that they have nothing for their new baby. Mrs. Davies is throwing a baby shower for the couple on Sunday October 7th after the 11 AM church service in the fellowship hall where our M4M meetings are held.
If you have any items to donate, please let Krystie know ASAP and she will arrange to pick up those items from you and deliver everything to Mrs. Davies before the baby shower date (10/7). There is a link to some suggested items (new or gently used) below for your convenience. Don’t feel limited by the list, but hopefully it will help you get an idea of what is needed.
Also, Krystie may be able to arrange to bring this new mom some more items after our October meeting, so if you can’t connect with her before 10/7, you can bring your items to our October meeting. Thanks in advance for your generosity in sharing Christ with this family. Krystie’s email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need her to pick something up.
