The Issue: High Demand for Basic Infant Necessities

With many families in Michigan facing economic difficulties, the demand for basic infant-care necessities continues to grow. Volunteers for Assistance League of Southeastern Michigan's Wee Help program assemble newborn necessities, such as receiving blankets, onesies, diapers, and hand-knitted hats, into layette kits that are provided to low-income women who are preparing to leave local hospitals.

Due to increased demand last year, the program had to cut the number of items it gave away, providing mothers with only one sleeper and onesie rather than two of each. This year, the program plans to serve up to 10 more hospitals.

The Campaign: Donating Infant-Care Kits to Mothers in Need

If this Grassroots campaign raises $540, then Assistance League of Southeastern Michigan can provide infant-layette kits to 40 mothers in need. The kits—which include a receiving blanket, onesie, bib, bottle, pacifier, sleeper, hand-knitted hat, and diapers—are delivered to women at 19 area hospitals through the Wee Help program. Each additional $10 raised will be used to help provide more kits (a $13.50 value each) to low-income mothers.
