Infant Toddler Diaper Pantry
Pennies From Heaven a ministry started by our friend, Ruth Strickhart, continues in her memory in our church. There is a collection jar at the rear of the sanctuary for your spare change, which will go to local ministries: the Pittsfield Youth Workshop and the Pittsfield Food Pantry. Ω
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Infant Toddler Diaper Pantry, through the First Congregational Church will be reopening on Tuesday, June 2nd with new guidelines in place for the time being. We will be open from 9-11 AM and ask that you please call 435-7471 when you arrive in the parking lot. Clients will not be able to enter the Church at this time. Weather permitting, we will place your diapers and wipes in a bag with your name attached and place it on a table in the parking lot. If the weather is not permitting, we will bring the product to you. Please use the parking lot off Chestnut Street. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to navigate through this pandemic.
The Infant Toddler Diaper Pantry is normally open the first and third Tuesday of each month from 9-11 AM. Each family is eligible to come for the supplemental diapers once per opening. (Twice a month)
each family receives 1 set of diapers/product per child in need and 1 package of wipes per family.
We currently have NB through size 6 diapers, along with pull-ups and overnights.
Anyone that needs help with their diapering needs is eligible to come to us once per opening. Being a supplemental program, we are here to assist, but not able to provide enough product for the 2 weeks.
If the Pittsfield School district has a delay or is canceled due to weather, we are closed for the day and will resume the following scheduled day. We are also closed the week of July 4th.
Please use the Chestnut Street entrance on opening mornings.
The Food Pantry is always in need of soups, peanut butter, jelly, toilet tissue, bath soap, shampoo, toothpaste and toothbrushes. Donations can be placed in the wooden box in the vestry. Thank you for your continued support of this local ministry. Ω Ω
