Newborns in Need, Central Kentucky Chapter
Newborns in Need is an all-volunteer non-profit organization committed to providing clothing and blankets to premature and needy newborn babies free of charge. No salaries are paid and all supplies are obtained by donation. We also provide burial layettes for the tiny infants who have lost their struggle for life. Volunteers sew, crochet, knit, tat, quilt and embroider caps, bonnets, gowns, diaper shirts, booties, blankets and many other items for donation to local area hospitals and medical centers as well as other agencies that work with preemies and newborns. Volunteers without skills may receive instruction or do one of the many administrative tasks required such as seeking donations for the supplies required, submitting grant requests or finding the need and delivering completed items. The only requirement is a desire to serve God's tiniest children.
