Neighbors Helping Newborns

Carriage Towne News

---- — KINGSTON —Neighbors Helping Newborns is looking forward to meeting at the Kingston Congregational Church, 6 Church Street, on Wed., March 27, from 9:00 a.m. to noon. It will be a busy meeting, and all are welcome to atend. The warm and smiling group is a good antidote for too much winter.

This month’s special sewing project will be tiny mitts. The hospitals (and parents) use these to prevent the tiny babies from scratching themselves. This is a new project for the group, and they expect some of them will discover new techniques as they work.

There is always a need for layettes, so folks will be packing many to be distributed to the hospitals for parents in need. There is a current need for lightweight sleepers for spring (it will come!), and for both long sleeve and short sleeve tops and outfits. Please remember them as you search clearance racks and local yard sales for gently used items for preemie, newborn and 0-3 months.

There will also be a group knitting and crocheting; hats (to fit on a 4 inch Styrofoam ball, and blankets and sweaters (no ties) are always needed. And they are always happy for donations of non-wool yarn; baby, sport or worsted weight.

To arrange to drop off donations or if you have questions, please contact their president, Linda Steward, at 603-642-9396.

Neighbors Helping Newborns would like to extend a special thanks to Kevin Schea of Harry’s Fuels of Brentwood and the folks at Rte 111 Storage in Danville for their very important and much appreciated support.
