Ever since Cities4Life™ was founded in 2010, we have worked closely with our LifeNetwork to connect moms who choose life with the practical resources they need in their situation. One of the LifeNetwork partners we work closest with is Truth and Mercy Ministries. The founder and director, Sheryl Chandler, has thrown lavish baby showers for moms who choose life for their babies and need practical material goods for their babies for decades. However, since Cities4Life has grown at such a rapid rate, we quickly saw Truth and Mercy become maxed out on what they could provide. This is such a vital part of our ministry, and being able to offer 2 year’s worth of clothing and baby supplies to these moms, that it is something we don’t want to put a limit on.
We are so grateful that God has raised up two women with a specific burden to head up Cities4Life baby showers. Angela and Natalie have worked tirelessly to get our baby shower ministry up and running. And they have done such an amazing job. So far they have thrown 6 baby showers for moms who have chosen life. And keep in mind, this is not just some diapers and baby clothes. We give these moms everything they need for the first 2 years. Cribs, car seat, strollers, clothes, diapers, wipes, bottles, formula, bathtub, soap, towels, toys, bedding…you name it. We are so grateful for God raising up servants with a heart and a vision to make it happen.
In order to sustain this ministry, we need your help. Do you have gently used or new baby items you would be willing to donate? We will be having a drop-off day for donations on the 2nd Saturday of each month at our storage building. The first drop-off day is coming up this Saturday, March 12, 2016 from 9-12 at Morningstar Storage, 3015 South Tryon St. Charlotte, NC 28217. No appointment is needed. Just drop by during that time period and our volunteers will be glad to receive your donations.
