With the continued support of generous volunteers and donors, the growth of Bundles of Love will continue until the ultimate goal is reached: that no family in Minnesota who needs clothing and bedding for their newborn, correctly sized clothing for premature infant, comfort items for their hospitalized infant, or bereavement items for a lost infant will be without these items. And stitched in to every item, will be a generous amount of caring and love which will tell these families that we are intertwined as one caring community of neighbors.
Volunteer work groups meet regularly to sew, knit, and crochet essential clothing, blankets, and other infant items for needy babies in the community. A variety of non-sewing tasks are also available at the work group meetings. The bundles (layettes) are given to Winona Health Hospital, Winona Public health, Project Fine, Se MN Rural resource Center and many other organizations. The organizations give them out to the babies.
Youth Volunteer Opportunities include:
- Sort material, cut and prep material which will be used
- Organize material, supplies, and donations
- Participate in knitting and sewing if interested
