" BABY BANK "Starting in September 2009 collections of essentail baby needs like diapers, wipes, ointments etc. will be made monthly to be distibuted through the VNA of St. Luke's Hospital to families in crisis. There are over 200 families in this program. Monetary donations are also gratefully accepted to purchase some of the items if members can not do the " shopping". A small act of kindness can go a long way.
We will not track contributions to the baby bank, so they do not count toward meeting the member's community service reqirement.
