I recently met a wonderful family while volunteering for FaithWorks at Westminster Presbyterian Church. Lena Levendoski is a mother who honors her first son by helping others and after spending the morning with her, her family and other volunteers, I want to help with their mission. The best way to share their story is to use their words on their website.
"We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping newborns in need. In honor and in memory of our son, Strick, we’ve made it our mission to help families who are unable to afford items like clothing and blankets for their newborn children. We deliver gently-loved clothing and necessities to them at Nashville hospitals, providing a little head start—and a lot of hope—to take home with their own bundle of joy."
Ashley Rohe Home wants to help Strick's Gift. We have volunteered to take any new or slightly used infant clothing (NB to 12 months), blankets, hats, socks. Please bring them to our store anytime and we will take them to Lena. This is a year-round effort to give babies in need a better equipped start in life.
