Help welcome newborn babies in need

To the Editor:

The Christ Child Society of Albany is planning its annual baby shower for Saturday, Oct. 14, from noon to 2 p.m. at the St. Madeleine Sophie Parish Center at 3500 Carman Road in Guilderland.

The needs of our layette program continue to grow and we extend a warm thank-you for your donation in assisting over 500 newborn babies in our community who are in need. All are welcome.

The layettes we distribute include an afghan or quilt (36 by 42 inches or 40 by 40 inches), receiving blankets, disposable diapers (newborn and size 1), onesies (3 to 6 months or 6 to 9 months), sleepers (3 to 6 months), hooded bath towels, handmade sweater sets, and baby board books.

We ask that you bring your layette items as a donation unwrapped.

Refreshments will be prepared for your enjoyment. Please RSVP by Sunday, Oct. 3, to Carol Kelly at 518-698-6633.
