RETA has Some Needs and YOU CAN HELP!

One of our small group leaders, and Derry's wife, Janelle has started volunteering at RETA (Reason Enough To Act) in Elkhart. RETA is a ministry that we have come behind as they reach out to expectant mothers and moms who might not be ready to be moms. Their ministry is fantastic and I truly believe that they are changing the world one life at a time.

They currently have some needs that I thought I would pass along:

Items for the EVERYDAY Store:
Newborn size Diapers
Size 4 Diapers
Pull-up Diapers
Clothes Sizes: Newborn to 6X (Really need size 3 Boys Winter Clothes)
Shoe Sizes Newborn to Kids Size 2
Baby Powder
Baby Lotion
Baby Oil
Enfamil Formula
Laundry Soap
Dish Soap
Deodorant (men & women)
Spaghetti Noodles
Other food items

Items for the CHRISTMAS Store:
Coloring Books
Colored Pencils

Toys for:
Babies, Toddlers, Boys & Girls

Items for Teens:
Think about what you would like. Remember they come from low income families, probably won't have iPods or gaming systems

If you're interested in Giving Sacrificially to RETA, let me know: geoffcocanower@nmc1.org. I would love to get you connected to such an awesome ministry. You can help come alongside girls who want to do the best they can for their children but maybe don't have the resources to do so.
