Another testimonial

The Baby Closet has been such a help and blessing to us! We (my
husband, me and our 4 children) are missionaries in Tanzania, East
Africa. We returned to the U.S. for our furlough this past June and
were very surprised shortly after arriving home to find out that I am
expecting our 5th child. Of course, a month before we returned to the
States, I sold most of my baby things to a fellow missionary in
Tanzania who was expecting. She was overjoyed to be able to get baby
things that we either cannot find or afford over there. Since our
youngest child is now 4, and I had surgery a few years ago, we thought
it was safe to move our things on to another family who could use
them. Boy, were we wrong! The Lord had another baby for us and we were
not sure how we would replace all the things we had just sold. We
would just have to rely on the Lord to supply our needs--and He
did--through the Baby Closet! I got some much needed things, and even
some that were just wants. One of those things was a nice set of
cloth diapers that will really come in handy in Tanzania! That was one
thing for which I had specifically prayed! Your labor of love will
reach all the way to the continent of Africa. Words can't express my
gratitude--but thank you all so much!
Love in Christ,
BJ & Cathy Schultz
Tanzania, East Africa

Maternity Clothes (we do now take!)

If you are interested in donating any maternity clothes in good condition, we are happy to accept those at the babycloset and give them to two pregnancy centers in Flint. The babycloset does not give away maternity clothes, but we understand that often when you are done with your baby items you are also done with your maternity clothes at the same time, so we are happy to help other moms in need by partnering with the other centers.

My experience with the baby closet has been wonderful! The volunteers there are friendly and do what they can to help someone who truly is in need. Its such a blessing to have this going for moms or dads that need an extra helping hand sometimes. I receive clothes to help with my children and in return when they are growing out of them,I give them to the baby closet to go to another mother in need. When I come across a friend in need i inform them of the baby closet because its by far the greatest help another place would give. Thank you volunteers and donors for making it a bit easier for everyone!

What is the babycloset?

The babycloset is a place at the Freedom Center that is filled with baby items to give to families in need. From bottles, to clothes, to cribs...everything that we have comes from donations of generous people. Children are a gift from God, so understanding that, we want to encourage and help moms (and dads) with the many needs of a new baby. We want families to feel loved and we want to take an active interest in their lives.
So, if you know someone that is in need and has a baby or a toddler, please have them call the church office to schedule an appointment.
Or, if you have baby items you would like to donate that are clean and gently used, please drop them off at the Freedom Center during office hours.
