Help PSS Support Parents-to-be!

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

God is in the business of supplying needs.

He did this through the generosity of members of the early Christian church.  Today, He continues to do this through His people.

How are we called to help?

One specific need relates to the people served by CCC ministry partner Pregnancy Solutions and Services, or PSS. Our friends at PSS use Emma’s Closet to help new parents clothe their babies, and provide other items for baby care.

For example, when a client has a baby, PSS gives the client a layette as a gift. It is filled with travel size baby wash, shampoo, lotion, baby socks and related items. PSS also makes items available to soon-to-be parents for taking classes in preparation for their baby’s birth. The parents can earn points which can be redeemed at Emma’s Closet for baby care items.

In helping these parents, God’s people can be instrumental in demonstrating God’s love for the parents, and generosity that can be life saving for the babies.

What can I do?

You can drop off needed items in the SOS bin at the Christ Community Chapel Hudson campus. This bin is located in the hallway between the atrium and the gymnasium.  Please mark items ‘For PSS’.

Here are the items PSS needs: baby towels, wash cloths, burp cloths, bibs, baby shampoo, body wash, wipes, lap pads, receiving blankets, baby socks and brand new clothing – all sizes for boys and girls…especially boys and girls 0-6 month outfits and P.J.s.  PSS clients also need nearly new clothing for girls 0-3 months and 24 month-3T as well as boys, 0-3, 3-6, 6-9, 12, 18 and 24 months – 3T.

The CCC Local Outreach team will ensure these items get to PSS and their clients.
