COMMUNITY CONNECTION SUPPORTING FAMILIES IN NEED
NOV 2021 | Vol.2 | Week 4
Hello Bambinos Supporters! We have been approached by different ones this year asking how they can sponsor a family in need this holiday season. Thank you so much for your generous hearts! Since we haven't been able to do baby showers with any success due to COVID, we're hoping to sponsor three different families this Christmas with Baby Shower Gift Packs. Here are some much-needed items:
Nursing pillow covers
Infant learning toys
Dreft (or off-brand) liquid detergent
Lotion, socks, tea or dark chocolate for mamas
Coffee or candy for dads
Gift cards for dinner out or groceries for mom and dad
You can select gender-neutral, girl OR boy and we can mix and match to fit what is needed. Get the things you are drawn to give. It's amazing how the Lord leads our givers to get just the right things (sizes and gender-specific) to meet just the right need.
We'd love to give a shout-out to Main Street Emporium and Journey Home Team (Jana & Megan Fogg) for donating diapers and infant toys. Also, a HUGE thanks to The Sippery in Monmouth and Kevin Steele of Steele Insurance for holding diaper drives for us over the last couple of months! Steele's drive is going now through December 15, so if you'd like to participate, there's still time.
Also, a friendly reminder with Christmas shopping upon us...there’s another easy way for you to help! Simply access your Amazon account by shopping through Smile.Amazon.com when doing your normal purchasing. All your account information will stay the same, but Amazon agrees to put 0.5% of your purchase amount towards the charity of your choice. Just select Bambinos Or in the upper left hand corner to make us the charity of choice. It's that easy. Another great way to help us while shopping on Amazon is to just add a pack of diapers and/or wipes to any order and have it shipped to us! We appreciate any way that help is given. When we as the Bambinos board lists the people and things we're most thankful for this Thanksgiving season, you're on our list! Blessings, Glenda J. Dunaway Executive Director Learn More
HELP SUPPORT BAMBINOS We are always in need of people who can pledge to send us a monthly gift that we can put toward our expenses. We call these wonderful people "Bambinos Builders." A pledge as little as $5 per month can still make a big difference.
