Ministry for providing clothing for families with children in need in our city.
A video history of Swaddlers
In the 18 years of the Ministry’s existence, Swaddlers has assisted area families with clothing needs for preschool age children
(newborn thru size 6).
Each child Swaddlers helps receives a basic clothing package which includes 4 pants, 4 shirts, 2 pajamas, a lightweight jacket, 4 socks and 3 pairs of underwear and a blanket. If available, children are provided additional quantities of clothing items as well as shoes, boots, winter jackets, and swimsuits (seasonally). During the winter, hats and gloves are provided in each care package. Coloring books, crayons and used books are also included in the child’s package. Infants and babies receive similar clothing quantities and are provided additional items such as blankets, towels, washcloths, burp cloths, and crib sheets.
In 2022, Swaddlers assisted 265 families with clothing needs for 441 children (nearly double the number helped in 2020). Thus far in 2023 (thru October 31), provided care packages to 414 children.
Our ministry is dependent on clothing donations and financial support from the community and members of our congregation. Together we can continue caring for families in need in our community.
