Cancellation of the Layette Dinner
scheduled on September 1, 2020

 

The vast majority of the women involved with Christian Women Groups who belong to MACCW and are in the SE & SW Deaneries are past retirement and could easily be in their 70s, 80s, and 90s.  It’s hard to eat a meal while wearing a mask. With only two responses for the dinner, it feels like people are being cautious before deciding.

 

Based on the Church’s stance about protecting ourselves which protects others from getting the virus from us, it has been decided to cancel the layette dinner. Meyer’s Restaurant has been informed and they are fine with this decision. 

 

For those Christian Women Groups who have collected baby supplies, the pregnancy center still needs them. They are either delivering the baby items to the home or cautiously meeting with moms in their offices. The work to end abortion and helping families in need, especially during the pandemic, still goes on. 

 

The four pregnancy centers are listed below.  It would be best for you to first separate the items going to each center, bag them up and then call the center and set up a delivery time or asking them if they would pick them up. Do not assume the center is open per the web site hours.  If for some reason the center cannot pick up the items, then I would be willing to deliver them to the center.  Those baby items are needed items. If this plan doesn’t work for you, please call me and I will be glad to help in any way I can.
