In January and February, the members of Crossroads Christian Church in Caseyville, IL organized a “Dry Diaper Drive” in order to collect various sizes of disposable diapers. Since these items are not covered by food stamps, they are one of the top items requested by food pantries. Over the course of the drive they filled their nursery crib with over $1,100 worth of diapers, wipes, and other baby care items to donate.
God made us all creative in many different ways. The women at First Christian Church in Edwardsville, IL saw a need to help others and came together to use those God-given gifts to make fleece blankets, prayer shawls, crocheted and knit baby hats, sweaters, and other items for St. Louis Children's Hospital at Barnes and SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center. Already this year they have donated 19 fleece blankets, 160 mesh bands, 36 baby hats, and 30 baby blankets with matching hats.
