Who Is Next Step?
Next Step is a non-profit organization whose goal is to help women deal with life choices regarding motherhood and pregnancy.
What Are Unattended Baby Showers?
Many mothers of unplanned pregnancies are unprepared. Unattended baby showers are a way that we can display love for these mothers as they welcome their children into the world. Every second Sunday of the month RHC will announce the information of a specific baby and mother we can help. On every third Sunday we will be collecting donations for that child at the church. We will collect the donations, wrap them up, and deliver them to Next Step along with a baby blanket.
How You Can Help.
Here is the list from Next Step (remember, we don’t need baby blankets.) The items most in need are size 5 and size 6 diapers and $10-$20 Safeway and Target gift cards.
