Baby Shower At Church To Benefit Newborns In Need 2009: Ahwatukee Foothills

Baby Shower at church to benefit newborns in need

An Ahwatukee Foothills church Saturday will be the scene of “The Largest Baby Shower on the Planet.” Organized by Newborns In Need, the event
is designed to raise needed baby supplies and will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Esperanza Lutheran Church, 2601 Thunderhill Place. Guests are asked to bring newborn-sized diapers, Ivory bar soap, baby clothes or blankets. “We are a group of volunteers who are interested in making the start of these babies lives better,” said Ahwatukee chapter spokeswoman Doris Dorwart . “If you have any fabric or yarn you are not using, please consider donating it – we will make sure it gets made into clothes or blankets for babies who need it, and families who appreciate it.” Generally, the group helps families that are financially unable to provide clothes for their newborns to wear home from the hospital. The group also assists newborns born early or in poor health and who are put in the NICU units. These units require clothing be made from 100 percent cotton to avoid creating any static which could cause mis-reads on the monitors or sensors. The group also provides bereavement outfits for newborns who don’t survive. Saturday’s event will feature work stations so guests can see what types of work NewBorns in Need does there will be opportunities to learn how to knit, crochet, tie quilts.
The Newborns in Need Ahwatukee chapter also meets at Esperanza Church on the third Friday o f every month from 10-11:30 a.m.
