Free Community Event

May 4, 2021

Dear Friends,

Thank you for all you do to support the ministry of CRADLE.  If it were not for God’s provision through our supporters, we would not be able to do what we do to help those in need.  God has showered His blessings upon CRADLE and we are so thankful!  This year’s Diaper/Wipe Drive has come to an end.  I’m thrilled to tell you that our goal has been exceeded!  The goal for this year was 10,000 diapers/potty training pants, 500 packs of wipes, and 50 tubes of diaper rash cream.  A total of 20,672 diapers/potty training pants, 902 packs of wipes, 89 tubes of diaper rash cream, a $75 gift card, and $350 have been donated!  Praise God from whom all blessings flow! 

 “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end.  Amen.” ~ Ephesians 3:20-21

With the overabundance of donations CRADLE has been blessed with over the years, we have come up with a way to give back to the surrounding communities.  We are planning a Free Community Event to celebrate CRADLE’s 25th year of service.  This Event will be held outside of CRADLE on May 27th from 11am-2pm.  This Free Event will be open to everyone, not just CRADLE clients.  We will be giving away clothes sizes Newborn-2T, diapers, wipes, formula, baby food, and much more!  Bibles will be handed out to all that come, as well as, CRADLE information.  CRADLE will be having an Open House for those who would like to take a look around the Center.  We hope to sign-up new clients during this Event, give out the Word of God, and help those who are in need.  CRADLE is not to be a storehouse, but to be a funnel to help people in need with what has so graciously been provided by the hand of God.  We have been blessed to be a blessing!  A flyer and bulletin insert for this Free Community Event has been included in this letter.  We would appreciate you sharing this Event with your congregation.

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?  I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” ~ Isaiah 43:19

CRADLE has now opened the Center back up to clients for in-person visits.  We are so excited to meet with our clients face to face again!  Precautions will be taken to keep our clients, volunteers, and staff safe.  CRADLE will continue to offer phone appointments for those who are unable or uncomfortable coming in person.  We are all learning how to thrive in this new normal we find ourselves in.  We are so glad for the opportunity to continue to serve and help mothers, children, and families in need.
We greatly appreciate your partnership and your prayers.  We thank God for you!  You are a blessing to us and our clients!  It is a joy to do the work of the Lord with you!

With gratitude,
Mandy Arthur
Executive Director
