Donation out – gowns to make burial layettes withBy
One of the items that we make at Relief Share is burial layettes for children who have passed away and only need one last gown and blanket to be snuggled in.
When someone is willing to make these burial layettes for the hospital, we donate out satin gowns to be cut up and used for the burial layette. Out of one wedding dress we can get 20 gowns!
We just happened to have 2 dresses made of satin and lace with beading that were donated by a store who couldn’t sell them because someone had spilled something on them. There has been no time lately to make them up into burial layettes but we weren’t concerned because we didn’t have any recent requests for them.
A lady from another charity asked for supplies to make burial layettes with so we donated the gowns out to her to use
If you have a beautiful wedding or bridesmaid gown that you are no longer using, please consider sending it to us to be used to make burial layettes. Many a grieving parent have expressed their gratitude for the beautiful layettes we provide in their time of need. You can help make it happen.
