Child Development and Education Club makes donation to Pregnancy and Support Center of Texas City
Posted on: February 15, 2012
College of the Mainland’s Child Development and Education Club received a donation of baby quilts that it gave to the Pregnancy and Support Center of Texas City.
A total of 19 quilts were handmade by the Sew Sisters of League City Quilting group of League City. The quilts are available for the expectant mothers to earn by attending classes on caring for their baby.
The Sew Sisters Quilting Group is a group of six senior citizen women who make quilts. They heard about the need for quilts at the Pregnancy and Support Center and began exchanging fabrics and stitching them.
The donation of quilts is part of the Onesie and Diaper Drive for the 2011-2012 school year, conducted by placing boxes in each of the COM buildings. The Child Development and Education Club has continuously held drives for various groups supporting children.
For the past four years, the club has held a baby shower, a baby supplies drive and a diaper drive. All of the donations have gone to the Pregnancy and Support Center.
The Child Development Club is always accepting new and gently used baby items to take care of Texas City’s children.
Donations can be made to club faculty advisor Susan Napoli at TVB 1329. For more information, contact Napoli at 409-933-8462.
