Charleston SC Chapter Newborns in Need
Summerville, South Carolina
Newborns in Need (NIN) is a non-denominational,
volunteer, not-for-profit organization created in 1992.
The local Charleston Chapter, the only one in SC,
meets the second Saturday of each month from 9:30
am to noon at the parish hall of St. Thomas Episcopal
Church, 1150 East Montague (off Park Circle) in N.
Charleston. Through work meetings and volunteer
efforts we are able to provide handmade items such
as blankets, quilts, burial layettes, clothing, booties,
and hats to premature and newborn infants. Our
volunteers work tirelessly knitting, crocheting and
sewing blankets and other items for the needy babies.
Currently, the Charleston Chapter is donating to
Birthright, MUSC Childrens Hospital Neo-Natal
Intensive Care Unit, East Cooper Community
Outreach, Low Country Crisis Pregnancy Center,
Florence Crittenton Home, Trident RMCLevel II
Nursery, Childrens Care Clinic, Roper Hospital in West
Ashley, Lowcountry Orphan Relief, Neighborhood
House, Our Lady of Mercy Outreach Center and
individuals and other facilities as needed. All items are
donated free of charge.
How can you help? Shop at i.Give.com and earmark
our group as your charity. Otherwise, we are always
looking for volunteers to sew, knit or crochet baby
items. You can do this on your own time and deliver
your creations at the monthly meetings, or you can
come to the monthly meetings and help with the
sorting and boxing of items received.
Other ways you can help:
1) If you sew, knit or crochet, get involved
in making baby items and blankets. We are always
looking for new volunteers. Patterns are available at
our meetings and on the national website at
2) If you dont sew, knit or crochet, still
come to the meetings as we always need help in
sorting, boxing and delivering the donations, or you
might help on a non-sewing project.
3) In addition, help is needed for other
administrative tasks like fundraising, publicity,
4) Or if you only want to help one time, hold
a drive or baby shower at your organization or church
and collect new baby clothing, diapers, infant formula,
or shampoo, lotion, etc., and donate it to NIN. Well
see it gets to the right place.
5) Donate fabric or yarn suitable for baby
clothing, i.e., poly-cotton, flannel, fleece, knit, satin
and sewing supplies.
6) Donate new and stain-free gently used
newborn clothing and blankets.
7) Donate gently used maternity clothing.
8) And, of course, a monetary donation in
ANY amount is always welcome, as we rely totally on
charitable donations for our supplies. Gift cards to
Wal Mart or Hancock Fabric are also greatly
appreciated. Or purchase a product throught the
iGive.com website and a portion will be donated to our
cause. Thank you!!
