So Many Ways to Give
Our volunteers would much rather while away the hours sewing, knitting, and crocheting, rather than fundraising. Can you help make sure they spend time counting stitches rather than coins?
You can use your credit card or PayPal funds to help support Neighbors Helping Newborns.

Make a Non-Cash Donation
We collect new and gently worn infant clothing (size “Newborn” or “0-3 months”) that hospitals can send home with babies who lack the basic necessities. So check the sale racks and thrift stores or pass along tiny items your children or grandchildren have outgrown.
Here are the types of store-bought layette items that are the most helpful to the new moms we serve:
- Cardigans or Hoodies
- Receiving blankets
Gift cards to Walmart, Target, BabiesRUs, Kohl’s, Joann’s, and Staples are also greatly appreciated because they help us to fill in the gaps when supplies are running low.
Handmade items such as quilts, blankets, sweaters, and hats are also in high demand. Here are the suggested sizes for the most-requested items:
- Quilt: 30″ x 30″ with low-loft batting
- Knit or Crochet Blanket: 24″ x 20″
- Sweater: Newborn size
- Hat: Circumference of 14″ and able to fit a 4.75″ diameter ball
For more sizing details and materials suggestions, please see our full size chart.
Raw materials such as fabric and yarn can be turned into beautiful handmade items by our volunteers. If you are cleaning out your craft room, we would appreciate donations of:
- Children’s flannel fabric (in lengths of 1+ yards)
- Solid-color or children’s print Jersey cotton fabric (t-shirt knit)
- Cotton-blend fabric (for clothing and quilts)
- Polar fleece
- Acrylic yarn in pastels, solid or patterns (in #4 worsted-weight, #3 sport-weight, or #3 baby-weight)
Delivering Your Donation
We would love to thank you in person, so please consider bringing your donation to a work group meeting. (We meet from 9 AM to noon on the fourth Wednesday of each month at The First Congregational Church of Kingston at 6 Church Street, Kingston, NH.)
However you decide to deliver your donation, please fill out a donation form to accompany it. That’s a huge help to the volunteers who log, sort, and record everything we receive each month.
