Caring Hands for Angels is an all-volunteer project started in 2014 by a small group of women who understand, some through personal experience, what it means to lose a baby. Whether motivated by a personal loss or simply by the universal human understanding of loss and grief, project volunteers strive to bring comfort to parents at a traumatic time. The caring hands of Caring Hands for Angels use donated wedding dresses and other formal wear to sew lovely gowns, buntings, and cocoons and also knit and crochet bonnets, booties and buntings. These are used for christening, burial or last photo outfits for babies who die at Golisano Children’s Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center (Strong Memorial Hospital), Highland Hospital, Rochester General Hospital and Unity (Park Ridge) Hospital in Rochester, NY. All services to families and hospitals are free.
The donated gowns provide yards of beautiful fabric but more supplies are needed. Donations will be used for flannel to line the gowns and fleece for miscarriage wraps and the blankets to accompany the angel gowns; yarn for hats, booties and outfits; as well as snaps, velcro, ribbon, thread and bags for packaging.
Thank you for your interest.
