2019 Compassion Project
This year our Compassion Project will be the Focus Pregnancy Help Center in Rochester, NY (www.focusphc.org). Their mission is to provide meaningful and compassionate care to women facing an unplanned pregnancy by connecting clients to life-affirming support services. Below is a list of items from their wish list that we will be collecting at retreat. Please make sure all items are NEW.
Your church or small group may choose to hold a “baby shower” to collect some of these items. Your church may also choose to collect a couple of items a month from now through retreat (i.e., April—blankets, or books/toys, May—pacifiers/bottles, June—diapers, July—formula). Or you may choose to put together a “baby basket” or “mother care basket”. Be creative!
Baby items: blankets, bibs, pacifiers, tethers, etc.
Children’s toys & books
Diapers (newborn to size 5), Pull-Ups
Tippy Toes baby formula (yellow top container)
Non-perishable food items
Household items: dishes, glasses, sheets
