Hilliard Studio Method / Baby Bundles Event TOMORROW!!!!!

BabyBundles-Hilliard

Hilliard Studio Method loves to celebrate powerful women as much as we at Baby Bundles love to support mothers and newborns! Join Hilliard TOMORROW (Wednesday, 4/8) at 12 Noon as we celebrate and support Emily Harry and our powerful organization, ‪‎Baby Bundles‬. Through Baby Bundles, Emily and co-founders Cat Long and Heather Leavitt have provided women in need the most basic essentials to begin their journey into parenting on solid ground.

Emily has always stood strong for those in need. We are standing with her today as she begins her journey back to her healthy ‪‎powerful‬ body.

Sign Up by emailing info@hilliardstudiomethod.com to secure your reservation. Please bring cash or check only, $25 minimum donation.

A very special thank you to Leslie Culbertson and Laura Vinroot Poole for their help in the coordination for this event!

Ringing-in 2015 with Great Thanks!

We at Baby Bundles hope everyone had a fabulous holiday season!

Baby Bundles would like to start off 2015 by thanking all of the volunteers who were an especially big help over the holidays.

These women, the “Circle 5” from Sharon Presbyterian Church, were a tremendous help on “Giving Tuesday” in December.

Thank you so much for all that you do for us, everyone!  Because of volunteers like you, we can shower new mothers and their babies with the love they need to get started!

Our first “Bundle” delivery to Ronald McDonald House

Baby Bundles has had the honor of forming a partnership with one of the most well-known organizations in the world, The Ronald McDonald House.   On 6/28/2012, we had the pleasure of making our first delivery to them.   15 girl and boy Bundles are now waiting to go home with some of the families that stay at the Ronald McDonald House.

The boys of Myers Park UMC Vacation Bible School helping out…….

On June 21st, 2012, 11 of the boys (yes, boys) and 3 parents from the Myers Parks UMC Vacation Bible School came out to the office to help me sort through mounds of donations.   In 2 hours, we went through over 8 bins of clothing and got it all sorted out and ready for bundle making.  And, the boys got an early education on baby clothing!   Check out the pictures of the awesome time we had!

Thanks again to everyone who came out and helped!

Another great Volunteer Event!

On May 22nd, Baby Bundles hosted another great volunteer event! This one was was really special because it was the first time we advertised the event to the community through Hands On Charlotte and VolunteerMatch.com. We had a spectacular turn out of friends, family members, and community members (who are now great, new Baby Bundles friends). The day was hugely successful in that we were able to sort through mounds of donations and make over 30 new bundles!

The rewards from everyone's hard work

Thank you to all of our donating partners!

A lot of our followers may not know this but most of our donations come from the fabulous people of the Charlotte community who are willing to donate their unsold items after local consignment sales.   However, we are not able to obtain theses donations without the partnerships that we have with the local organizations and churches who host these consignment sales twice a year.   Below is a list of these organizations and churches:

  • Harris YMCA
  • University United Methodist Church
  • Just a Week Boutique
  • Assurance United Methodist Church
  • Sardis Presbyterian Church
  • Covenant Presbyterian Church
  • Myers Park Presbyterian Church

An example of the fabulous donations we get

Any individual or organization interested in making donations, please contact us!  We would love to talk to you!
