For the last 26 years we have worked with young parents all across Durham Region by providing them with crisis counseling and access to programs and services that provide them with the tools to build better futures for themselves and their children.
One of the small ways we do that is by celebrating the birth of every baby with a layette (a laundry basket) filled with many items that a mom would need in the first couple of weeks, one of the mainstay items of this special delivery is a handmade blanket, which I think your group could help provide. We also put clothes, booties, hats, etc in the layettes.
Our only limitation is due to choking and safety hazards we can’t accept anything with strings or ties of any sort.
