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. Volunteers at Newborns in Need believe that whether they are helping one, or helping one hundred, each one deserves the basic items that give them a warm and healthy start in life.
Your time, your gifts and your support are critical to making the early weeks of life more comfortable and safe. The need is greater than most can see, but our volunteers do not shy away from such a daunting task. Your gift of time or donations, will help us help a newborn in need. It takes a little from of each of you to make such a big difference.
Newborns in Need, Inc. (NIN) is a 501(c) 3 charity organized to take care of needy babies. NIN 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 United States. Founded upon Christian principles of love and acceptance, ”NIN” has provided essential items without charge to those in need since 1992.
Our Services: Volunteers provide our Newborn Immediate Need Kits filled with basic necessities for a newborn during the first few weeks of life. Collecting needed items such as as baby wash, sleepers, diapers, wipes, thermometers and other necessary items, these items are distributed in the local community. Talented hands create warm blankets, afghans and quilts to fill the kits, lovingly created by Newborns in Need volunteers. Sadly, so many communities are without Newborns in Need chapters and we need your help. Don’t let one baby be cold, wet, hungry or without a safe place to sleep. Everyday our volunteers work tirelessly to find items to meet the needs of our nation’s babies. Start a chapter, collect needed items, or donate funds to keep one baby safe and warm.
Why you are needed: In the United States approximately 2,000 babies are born into poverty each day. Over 540,000 babies are born prematurely each year and for every 1,000 babies born, 6 babies lose their fight for life.
WE NEED MORE chapters and donations to meet the ever growing needs of these babies. In 2013 we distributed over 450,000 items and the need continues to soar!
