Begininning Phase of Reopening Center
God has allowed us to continue to meet the material needs of our clients during the Covid-19 pandemic. Not only are we still handing out material items, we have continued to give out the Word of God. Bible studies are being given to the clients who come for “door pick-up” days. We are also mailing Bible studies to clients that request them. I’m grateful that God allowed us to continue shining a light of hope to the community during bleak, uncertain times.
We are in the beginning phase to fully reopen the Center. Due to the pandemic and following quarantine, material donations almost completely stopped. We have gone through most of our stock of diapers and wipes especially in sizes 4 and 5. We have been buying diapers and wipes to hand out at zero points to our clients to be a blessing to them in their time of need. We are extremely thankful for the churches and donors who have continued to send in monetary donations. They are a tremendous blessing and allow us to continue this much-needed ministry.
There are many changes that we are all living with right now. At CRADLE, we are looking for new ways to accept donations in a safe way. CRADLE is starting a Virtual Diaper/Wipe Drive that will run until July 31, 2020. Our goal is 10,000 diapers (that equals to around 100 boxes depending on size) and 100 packs of wipes. We have made Wishlists on Amazon and Walmart where you can pick items on the list to purchase and send to CRADLE (1112 Gallia St. Portsmouth, OH 45662) without ever leaving your home. You can also bring in material donations to the Center Tuesday-Thursday, 10am-4pm.
Will you join us in helping those in need and assist us in reaching our goal? We have been blessed to be a blessing! Thank you for all you do to support the ministry of CRADLE!
