Mothers of a child under one year of age or expectant mothers who are at least seven months pregnant can come to Breakfast with Baby at The Salvation Army in Des Plaines. Once a month they are served a hot breakfast, receive encouragement from the Bible and from conversations with volunteers. They form friendships with each other while eating together and talking about their kids. But most importantly, they receive a free package of diapers and baby wipes for each eligible child.
Donations of diapers, wipes, gently-used or new clothing, books, toys, and other large baby items such as strollers, cribs, exersaucers, bouncy seats, etc. are needed to aid these families each month.
Volunteers are needed to help sort the baby items, and to help set up the "store" once a month.
