Driven by the nation-wide United States Catholic Conference of Bishops’ Walking with Moms in Need initiative, the Detroit Walking with Moms in Need is a partnership between the Archdiocese of Detroit and Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan, which equips and assists Catholic parishes and parishioners in raising awareness about resources that provide assistance to pregnant and parenting moms in need. SS John and Paul is helping in this effort by collecting much-needed items for Project hope. These items will be distributed through baby pantries in Detroit, Pontiac, Romeo, and Monroe.
Most needed items: Diapers (size 3-6), wipes, Enfamil and Similac powdered formula (please no other brands), girls’ and boys’ outfits (newborn – 25months).
Other items: diaper rash cream, baby wash/shampoo, baby towels/washcloths, bibs, bottles, pacifiers, baby lotions, baby socks, crib sheets, baby blankets, and baby books.
The initiative seeks to make each parish in the Archdiocese a place where moms and their babies are welcomed and supported and where the dignity of every human life is upheld and valued. Please click here for more information and a list of resources.
