KINGSTON —Neighbors Helping Newborns is gearing up to package and distribute warm layettes to the area's needy newborns. This work, and other projects, will take place at their Wed., October 22 meeting, held at the Kingston Congregational Church from 9:00 a.m. until Noon. The church very generously supports them with work and storage space, as well as much needed and appreciated donations.
The sewing group will focus on knit fabric hats, cutting out burp clothes, and ironing their now famous Christmas stockings that are used by the local hospitals to present the babies to their mothers during the holiday season. They invite you to join them in logging in donations, packing layettes, sewing and ironing, or join the group knitting and crocheting sweaters, hats and blankets for the little ones.
New and gently used clothing, newborn or 0 to 3 months sizes, quilts, blankets, and small Beanie Baby toys are always appreciated. Donations of non-wool yarn keep many hands busy, both at the meetings and at home. For questions or to arrange pickup, please contact President Linda Steward at 603-642-9396. And join them on Wed., October 22, for some fun and a warm feeling from donating your time and efforts.
