Angel Care is a pro-life ministry of St. Marianne Cope Parish that assists financially stressed mothers, who are referred to us and in need of necessary baby items upon the birth of their child.  By providing them with a new portable baby bed, new mothers can feel secure in knowing their child will be safe while sleeping as this would otherwise be difficult for them to provide on their own. We also provide new and gently used baby items upon request (refer to wish list).  Referrals are made by social workers, case workers, and other contacts from various social agencies, hospitals, etc. that work with women during their pregnancy and new mothers in need. 


Wish List:
  • baby clothes (new or gently used; sizes birth to 12 months; all seasons), onesies, sleepers, socks, seasonal outerwear (especially snowsuits)
  • baby wipes 
  • bibs
  • blankets: receiving and crib types
  • diaper bags
  • diaper cream, shampoo, baby wash, baby powder (NO TALC) 
  • disposable diapers (sizes 1 and 2 only)
  • hooded towels, washcloths
  • monetary donations to help purchase new portable baby beds can be sent to St. Marianne Cope Parish, 3318 E. Henrietta Rd., Henrietta, NY 14467. “Angel Care” must appear on memo line.    

Volunteers Needed:
  • Volunteers available during the day (preferably in the Rush-Henrietta area for convenience) to call a remote phone number, take information from phone message, return call (usually to a community agency social worker, case worker, etc.), assemble items requested at Angel Care site and have them ready for pickup.
