Have a "baby shower" & donate the gifts to mothers in need!
We are always in need of new or gently-used children's clothing sizes Newborn - 16. We often run out of boys' sizes 5 and up. If you are able to donate, or know of anyone who can help, it would be GREATLY appreciated!! (Please see Wish List to the right) Tax deductible receipts are available.
Please watch a video from Channel 7 Published on Nov 11, 2015 about the Baby Ministry and the Pajama Program, which encourages cuddling with your child and a book.
DRIVING DIRECTIONS from former location: The Baby & Children's Ministry is located in the Harvest House Ministry Center at 175 Jefferson Avenue. Generous people who want to donate and are familiar with the former location on Seneca Street ask us for directions on how to get there from Seneca Street. It is only 2.5 miles away!
Turn right out of the parking lot onto Seneca Street.
At the signal near Larkin Square where Seneca Street bears left, stay to the right of the fire station and continue on Swan Street.
Drive under the viaduct. Make the first right turn onto Jefferson Avenue. The Harvest House Ministry Center is 2 blocks on the right, with a large parking lot.
