Tuesday, August 16, 2022
The Women of Faith Women’s Ministry of Second Missionary Baptist Church, 2305 East 3rd St., invites the community to participate in donating items to three local non-profit organizations that are in great need. 

The ladies’ ministry is hosting a Community-Wide Baby Shower on Aug. 20 from 10 a.m.-noon onsite in Chattanooga. 

Contributions in the form of new unwrapped baby items and/or monetary donations will be accepted. Typical preemie, newborn, up to toddler-size baby items may be brought by the church after 10 a.m.
and before noon. If preferred, checks, made payable to SMBC Chattanooga, may be mailed or dropped off during the shower. Online giving is available by clicking "Give" on the website at  MySMBChurch.org or by searching for SMBC Chattanooga using the app or Givelify.com and selecting “WOF Ministry.” 

"We would love to see representation from area churches, community organizations, families and individuals on Aug. 20, as our goal is to collect as much as possible for the designated organizations," organizers said. "Each of the agencies assists a large number of underserved moms, moms-to-be and their families. Their need has truly grown during these challenging times we have all experienced over the past two years. We are looking forward to you spending this time with us on Aug. 20 at the SMBC WOF Community Baby Shower. Thank you for being a blessing to families in need."

The donations will go to the following organizations:
• Chattanooga Room in the Inn;
• Maclellan Family Shelter; and
• New Hope Pregnancy Care Center (Cleveland).
