Outreach Baby Shower
We try to hold a shower once a year to provide the youth with essential baby supplies, to celebrate parenthood, and to provide a sense of normalcy for them, as our youth would likely not have a baby shower otherwise.
Outreach will be inviting our youth who are between the ages of 14 and 24 who are either currently 3 or more months pregnant, or have had a baby in the past 6 months. We are hoping to provide some emotional support for these clients, as they may be feeling overwhelmed by the sudden reality of parenthood. We also hope to show them that other members care about them and their baby. Also, we desire to help reduce the stress of preparing for a baby by providing them with some baby items.
If you desire to help provide donations, here’s what to do:
1) Scan through our list of needs and choose which items you want to donate. We do ask that all items are new.
2) Please bring your donations by our Drop-in Center (2822 E. New York St. Indianapolis IN) Monday- Friday from 9:30AM-4:00PM,
3) Please continue to pray for our young families and the challenges raising a child creates.
4) Please have all of your donations to Outreach by Thursday September 8, 2016
If you have any questions or if you would be interested in volunteering some time to help us prepare for this celebration please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call Outreach at 317-951-8886. Any donations we are unable to use for the baby shower we will keep on hand to supply to our families throughout the year.
