Dozens of friends gathered for a “baby shower” hosted by the Caring Hearts of Snee Farm. The shower was the sixth annual event of its kind to collect onesies, sleepers, diapers and other essentials for Newborns in Need. NIN will send these necessities to agencies and hospitals serving premature, ill or impoverished newborns.

More than 500 new items were collected including sleepers, socks, onesies, bibs, blankets, hats and diapers to help needy babies who might otherwise spend their first few days of life with nothing to keep them warm.

The Caring Hearts of Snee Farm is a group of 15 women dedicated to charitable works of all kinds and to providing a convenient platform for friends and families to join in the celebration of giving. www.CaringHearts@squarespace.com

Newborns in Need is a non-denominational, volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)3 charity organized to take care of sick and needy babies and their families; and in cases of crisis to help where help is needed. Currently, the Charleston Chapter is donating to through several area hospitals, A.I.D.S., Birthright, East Cooper Community Outreach (ECCO), Florence Crittenden and Lowcountry Crisis Pregnancy Center and individuals and other facilities as needed. All items are donated free of charge.
