As you prepare to brave the adventures of this year’s holiday shopping season, tuck into your purse or pocket this wish list prepared by the Sisters of Life.
Each day as Sisters and Co-Workers of Life, we have the privilege of encountering anew the Holy Family in the women and families we serve. Just as Mary and Joseph sought a welcome in Bethlehem 2000 years ago, many mothers come to us in need as they prepare for the birth of their babies. This year we have served about 500 women. We are inviting as many as possible to stop by this Christmas to get reacquainted and share the joy of Christmas.
As you track down the perfect gift for your friends and loved ones, we invite those of you who are considering picking up something extra to support our mission to vulnerable pregnant women to see below.
We would find the following items most helpful. Thank you for your generosity! Each new mother is always so grateful for the smallest kindnesses.
Maternity clothes - Maternity Tops (Small, Medium and Large); Maternity Pants – stretchy panel pants (Small, Medium, and Large); Maternity night wear (Small, Medium, and Large); Maternity Dresses (Small, Medium, and Large); we accept lightly used items.
Metro Cards – purchased at Subway stations
Gift cards – for clothing or food stores, like Old Navy, Target, or Pathmark
Fetal development models – Often the women keep them in their purse to remind themselves about their perfectly formed child. Click here.
