Baby’s 1st Christmas
Over the last several years, Destiny Ministries receives more and more calls from area agencies in need of beds for babies. The agencies that we are closest to such as Healthy Start report some homes needing a safe place for the babies due to sleeping with their mom and sometimes several children in the bed at the same time.
I remember one home that I went into that had a 6 pound week old baby sleeping on one side of the mom while her two other boys ages 5 & 6 were sleeping on the other side. This entire little family lived in this one bedroom.
Destiny Ministries provides play yards for these babies in need. Due to the fact that most of the living quarters of some families are limited, the need for a small bed is necessary.
Please join us in providing a safe place for babies to sleep this Christmas. On Saturday December 18 Baby’s 1st. Christmas will give beds to babies that need a safe place to sleep. This event will be held at:
City Community Church
940 Tarpon St.
Ft. Myers, Fl. 33916
12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
In order for this to be a success we need beds and other baby items. Each baby needing a bed will come from a referral agency. Also provided will be a tote bag filled with diapers, wipes, lotions, clothes, toys, and a little something for mom. To volunteer or participate, please call 239-549-2130 and ask for Rebecca (cell 910-8198)
