Green County Pregnancy Center
Our Family Support Services Office is in need of toiletries for our Newborn Layettes. Specifically, we need toiletries for our "Mom's Gift" and baby toiletries. We are nearly out of everything for the new moms. The Newborn Layettes are the baskets of new items we give to moms for their new babies. The majority of the items in the layettes are for the babies but we try to put a little something to paper the mom in them too.
For the moms, we need things like:
- loofah sponges/shower scrunchies
- body wash
- bath oils, bath gels, or bath salts
- small candles
· anything else that pampers a new mom.
· For the babies, we need:
- Baby Shampoo
- Baby Wipes
- A & D Ointment
- Baby Bath
Donations of these items can be dropped off at the Family Support Services Office (2902 - 13th St - Monroe) Tuesday through Friday noon-3:00pm or at our downtown office (1508 - 11th St - Monroe) any time. If it is outside of our business hours, items can be left in the entryway of the downtown office.

Mercy Mat update:
Since the beginning of March the Mercy Mat ladies have made 24 mats, 21 of which have been taken to The Beacon and Porchlight homeless shelters in Madison! There is always a need for these mats at the shelters. It takes approximately 900 plastic bags and 200 hours to construct one Mercy Mat. That's 21,600 bags and 4800 hours! Great job ladies! With summer coming the Mercy Mat group will not be meeting for the months of June, July and August but will start up again in September. Please remember to bring clean plastic bags to the church for next September. Thanks to everyone who has donated bags or helped construct the mats this year.

Gardening is in full swing in the beds at Our Saviors. All are invited to be a part of the team, and later, to enjoy the various vegetables as they are ready. Please feel free to check out the gardens and see what is ready to be picked, or plant something you would like.
