From time to time, I would like to highlight local organizations or local chapters of organizations that are "Doing Good" in our community. This week, I would like to thank Ellen Emond for nominating 'Newborns In Need.'
Here is a quote from their website:
"All babies everywhere deserve warmth, food and love. Here, in our nation, too many babies are without the essentials to meet their most basic needs. Newborns in Need, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 charity organized to help take care of needy babies. Newborns In Need volunteers provide care necessities to agencies and hospitals serving premature, ill, or impoverished newborns. Newborns In Need distributes items free of charge to babies in the Greater Richmond area.
Founded upon Christian principles of love and acceptance, Newborns In Need has provided essential items without charge to those in need since 1992. 95% of all monies raised by Newborns In Need go to programs and services!!"
If you are interested in volunteering or you simply would like to know more about their good works, please go to: Newbornsinneed.org and click on local chapters or you can call 804-681-0131.
