Thanks to your generous donations of baby items for Greenville’s Gift the past two months, our crib is overflowing with cuddly baby clothes and blankets! We will continue our collection until March 10, so you are welcome to add your items this week. Read more information below about the organization and items we are collecting.
Greenville’s Gift will be one of our service sites for Operation Inasmuch on March 18, where volunteers will sort items and pack gift bags for new mothers, led by team leaders Becky Bouton and Rolyn Rollins. If you haven’t registered for Operation Inasmuch, follow the link here to join in the fun morning of missions and fellowship at over 20 sites in our local community: https://firstbaptistgreenville.com/oiam2017/
Greenville’s Gift is a new 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to clothing newborns in need in the Greenville community. While many babies are born to families who have the means to provide for them in terms of clothing and blankets, other families are unable to provide these necessary items. Greenville’s Gift works to bridge this gap and to meet their needs. The objective of Greenville’s Gift is to collect gently used and new infant clothing and blankets from the Greenville Community and then gift these items to moms in financial need. Greenville’s Gift will rely on community agencies and local hospitals to identify the recipients. Local clinics and hospitals will present the gift bags to moms at the end of their pregnancy or during their stay in the hospital. The hope is to make new moms and babies feel celebrated and loved by the Greenville community by presenting beautifully wrapped gift bags filled with newborn essentials.
Please place your donations in the baby crib near the Reception Desk or in a purple collection bin around the church. Thank you for your generosity!
