                                                 LOVE THY BABY !!
  
WELCOME  "LOVE THY BABY" !!   LTN is extremely happy to announce that we have added this new program to our family of services.  Love Thy Baby (LTB) will focus on meeting the needs of infants who are born into health or economic crisis.  LTB volunteers make and collect warm blankets and clothing for newborn babies who are born premature, sick, or into poverty and the items are then distributed by wonderful volunteers to those in need through hospitals and agencies including: Parkland Health and Hospital System, John Peter Smith Hospital, Family Place, Nexus, Sharing Life and Hope for Refugees.

Love Thy Baby is already up and running, as they were previously a successful running chapter of  "Newborns In Need" for the past 15 years.  Joining LOVE THY NEIGHBOR will allow them to grow their services, recruit new volunteers, and increase local awareness of their mission.

Love Thy Baby meets weekly on Thursday's from 10:00am to 2:30 pm in donated space provided by Webb Chapel Church of Christ at 13245 Webb Chapel Road, Farmers Branch, TX.  They also meet on the first Saturday of each month at the same time in the same location to collect and distribute monthly donations. LTB volunteers work together at weekly meetings and individually at home to create beautiful handmade quilts, receiving blankets, afghans, hats, booties, t-shirts, diaper bags, bibs, burp cloths, toys and more for babies born into need.  Individual and group baby showers are held to collect purchased items such as socks and onesies that are needed for the babies as well.

About Our Organization

To-date, we have served 130,000 healthy and nutritious meals. Additionally, we prepare to-go bags daily for those who are homeless or are unable to prepare an evening meal. We are always in the need of additional volunteers to help prepare and serve the meals. We are so blessed to have loving volunteers make each hot meal from “scratch” each day. Many thanks to individuals, churches and businesses who have so kindly provided fresh fruit and produce from their gardens and stores. We have been able to offer the most delicious salads and vegetables to our guests through these amazing donations.
