Mother’s Day at Hyde Park Union Church
The month of May marks a special time for mothers. Mother’s Day at Hyde Park Union Church is not only a day to recognize mothers and motherhood. It is also a day when Gilead Ministry and members of the Gilead Auxiliary and other volunteers gather to assemble layettes for new mothers at Jackson Park Hospital. The layettes contain items for new babies, such as blankets, onesies, hats, sleepers, Pampers (size 1), wipes, bibs, and socks. Gilead Ministry and Gilead Auxiliary are asking for donations of items listed above to include in the layettes or financial contributions to purchase these items. Donated items and/or financial contributions may be brought to the church office during regular office hours or brought to the church on the day of the event. Your consideration concerning this project is greatly appreciated.
