Sewing for Charity

Retta, is a good friend that I met several years ago while teaching in Baton Rouge. She e-mailed me last week to say, "Hey, I'm on the news!" The news clip gives a wonderful description of the charity work that she and her friends do for their area hospitals and homes for unwed mothers around the South.

What a wonderful idea to use our sewing gifts to truly bless others in need!

If you would like to help with their ministry they have a great need for new or gently used onesies, sleepers, and daygowns, in either preemie or newborn sizes. You can mail these to:

Faith Presbyterian Church
c/o Ladies Mission
12855 Old Hammond Highway
Baton Rouge, LA 70816-1025

Thanks for sharing this! I too, have a "Threads of Love" ministry here in my town - it's so rewarding to be able to give back to God what He has given to me in having the talent to sew and to use that talent for Him!

Oh, my-thanks so much for sharing this-it made me cry and I so appreciate not only what these ladies are doing for others, but what they are doing for themselves!
