Bless a Birth Mother With Your Donation

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on March 28, 2016

three_birth_mothers.jpgLifetime requests your help for the birth mothers we assist through the Lifetime Adoption Foundation. We frequently assemble “labor bags” filled with goodies for these precious women when they have their hospital stay during labor and delivery.

We’re in need of journals, new or gently used maternity clothing for our birthmothers, and toiletry items. We use toiletries in our labor bags, which Lifetime birth mothers receive to make their hospital stay more comfortable. We also have a food bank of non-perishable items.

Here is a rundown of the items we need:
•    Journals
•    Maternity clothing
•    Toiletry items (such as toothbrushes, combs, lip balm, hair ties, socks, shampoo, and conditioner)
•    Non-perishable food items

If you’d like to help the Lifetime Foundation bless women choosing adoption, you can find these items cheaply at Target, Wal-Mart, dollar stores, and online on sites like Amazon. You may mail your donations to:
 
Lifetime Foundation
400 Idaho-Maryland Road, Suite B
Grass Valley, CA 95945
 
Please also share this need with your friends, family members, and church, who may be able to help us. The above list and address may be printed out for them. When sending items, please make sure that you include a note or that your package is clearly marked so we know who sent it. If needed, Lifetime can supply you with a receipt from the Lifetime Foundation for your tax purposes.
 
We look forward to your help and you should know that birth mothers repeatedly express gratitude for the Lifetime Foundation's help, which can only happen with the assistance of people like you. Your generosity is touching on many levels!
