Layette Kits Available

April 29, 2009  

Lutheran World Relief distributes layettes to new mothers in nearly 20 countries. During a recent five year period, over 225,000 layettes were distributed. The most amazing fact is that each layette was provided by someone much like you, a caring member of a congregation just like OSLC!!

Layette Kits are available in the Narthex on Sunday May 10th. They are due back on Rally Sunday, September 13th. Each layette kit should include the following:

  • Two shirts
  • Two gowns or sleepers
  • Two receiving blankets
  • Four cloth diapers
  • Two wash cloths
  • One bath-size bar of soap
  • Two diaper pins

Items can be new or used. Be sure to check out the rummage sales this summer. Used items must be clean and in good repair. Receiving blankets and diapers may be made of flannel. Please vary the sizes of clothing (up to 24 months) so the layettes will continue to be useful as the baby grows.

The Social Ministry Team would like to thank Vera Wensole, Margaret Turner and Shirley Atkinson for knitting the beautiful sweaters. They look GREAT!

Any questions and/or concerns may be directed to Rod Tisthammer or the church office.
