Last week SCH received a very generous donation of newborn kits from two congregations of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in La Canada, California. Women, ages 12 and up from the congregations were able to assemble and ship 52 newborn kits to SCH. The newborn kits each included: a handmade flannel receiving blanket, 4 cloth diapers and diaper pins, 2 bars ivory soap, a layette gown, and a pair of baby socks.

One of the purposes of the church’s women’s organization, called the Relief Society, is to work in unity to help those in need. The members of the church often look for ways to provide opportunities for their congregation to serve where there might be a need.
There have already been several mothers at SCH who have received and utilized these newborn kits. SCH is very grateful to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for their donation and support.
