Baby and Children's
At the Baby & Children's Ministry mothers, fathers, grandmothers, and other caregivers have their pride and dignity restored as they "shop" free of charge for items their children need.
The Baby & Children's Ministry supports more than 200 community service agencies who send more than 5,000 children living in poverty to our ministry each year for clothing, safe cribs, car seats, strollers, toys, books, pajamas, etc. Most of the items given away have been donated through private individuals, clothing drives, "baby showers," and scouting projects.
Through the generosity of individual donors, workplace and school Jean Days, and the proceeds of our Bottles for Babies™ Campaign we are able to purchase items such as safe cribs, pack 'n plays, socks and underwear. This ministry is managed by the Director, Guadalupe Pena. "Lupe" is assisted by 30 wonderful volunteers.
