Proudly Supporting

How can you help?

You can volunteer your time, and/or you can donate!

We love Newborns In Need’s mission! They provide for nearly 1,000 little ones each month and serve 80 agencies in Springfield and the surrounding area.


Volunteers sew, knit and quilt at our facility or at home.  We receive beautiful knitted baby afghans, pieced quilts, sleepers, soft and cuddly toys and so much more.  51 items are placed in the large layettes that go to hospitals, clinics and social agencies here in Springfield and also in Carthage, Monett, Aurora, Houston, Joplin, Branson and beyond.  We send items to agencies in 32 different counties throughout Missouri and Northern Arkansas.

Smaller layettes go to Pregnancy Care Centers, and other individually packaged items go to Doctor’s offices, ER’s, WIC offices, Health Departments, schools, pantries and homeless shelters.  Each package contains the needed items for the particular agency.
