It’s a Very Merry Baby at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church

By on December 2, 2019

Infant layettes needed for new arrivals in the year ahead

Welcoming a new baby is a joyous event in the life of a family. Sometimes, however, the new parents lack the financial means to purchase clothing and other items needed to keep their newborn comfortable and warm.

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Brockport offers complete layettes to families in need. The layettes are distributed throughout the year. Since it began, dozens of moms and babies in Brockport and the surrounding area have benefited from the program.

Twice a year – at Christmas and Mother’s Day – St. Luke’s reaches out to the community for assistance in restocking the nursery shelves with much-needed items in sizes newborn, 0-3 months and 3-6 months. 

Items (new) needed in the above sizes for this year’s A Very Merry Baby campaign include: long-sleeved white onesies, gowns and fleece sleepers, long-sleeve shirt and pant sets, winter outfits for girls and boys, hats and other outerwear, receiving blankets, baby bath towels, washcloths, baby wash and lotions, diapers size 1. Body lotion for the new moms is also appreciated. Gift cards to stores that sell diapers and/or baby clothes are also welcome as are monetary donations. Please make checks payable to St. Luke’s and indicate Luke’s Layettes. 

To help new moms and their infants throughout the year, please drop off your gifts at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 14 Main Street, Brockport, between 8:30 a.m. and noon, Monday through Thursday. The Very Merry Baby Campaign continues through the end of the year.
