Angels in the Valley

with one comment

This came to my attention because it’s part of my church’s outreach program. From the Angels in the Valley website:

“Each month over 700 newborn babies leave Las Vegas Valley hospitals and go home to little or nothing. They might be wrapped only in their father’s shirt. They will sleep on the floor, in a basket, or in a drawer. Cold babies are more likely to become sick, and perhaps have to return to the very hospitals they recently left. Angels In The Valley provides hospitals with going-home layettes containing a new outfit and blanket to keep these precious babies warm.

Sadly, some babies won’t be going home. Born too soon or with health issues, these tiny angels need only one outfit. It is so comforting to the parents to have their babies beautifully dressed as they say their first hello and last goodbye. Angels In The Valley provides gowns, hats and blankets for these little ones. Some of our gowns are only 8″ long!

Right now the Angels in the Valley need blankets 30’x40″, flannel receiving blankets for girls, newborn size sleepers for boys and girls and hats – pastel and white.

Continuing needs are sleepers 0-3 months and 3-6 months. Preemie clothing, receiving blankets, socks, disposable diapers (newborn or size1), white flannel fabric 1 yard or more, white anti-pill fleece fabric 1 yard or more,  1/8″ wide white ribbon,  1/2″ or 3/4″ wide lace in white or pastels 1.5 yards or more. Plus you can make cash donations. If you attend First Christian Church Las Vegas, in the offering plate or go to the website      http://www.angelsinthevalley.org

  1. This article gave me chills!! My daughter, sadly, had to partake in the 8″ gown senereo in Michigan afew years ago, as her Zackery Caleb went to be with Jesus. She was stunned when a group such as this was there to assist, provide & comfort with items needed! How wonderfully thoughtful! God bless you all!
