Supplies needed for newborns

To the Editor:
The Christ Child Society of Albany is planning its annual Baby Shower for Saturday, Oct. 22, from noon to 2 p.m. at St. Madeleine Sophie Parish Center at 3500 Carman Road.

Our chapter members and volunteers distribute layettes to over 20 local service agencies in eight counties. The needs of our layette program continue to grow and we would appreciate your support. All are welcome.

The layettes we distribute include an afghan or quilt, receiving blankets, disposable diapers (newborn and size 1), booties or socks, onesies (3 to 6 months or 6 to 9 months), sleepers (3 to 6 months), hooded towels, handmade sweater and hat sets, and baby board books. We ask that you bring your layette items as a donation unwrapped.

Refreshments will be prepared for your enjoyment. With that being said, please RSVP by Sunday, Oct. 16, to Carol Kelly 518-698-6633.
