Birthline needs volunteers, diapers

Birthline, a ministry of the Office of Pro-Life and Family Life, serves pregnant women and mothers in need by providing diapers, wipes, clothes and other baby items. Birthline is seeking phone volunteers to assist callers by providing a listening ear and scheduling appointments to receive material and spiritual assistance.

In the past year, the ministry has assisted nearly 1,100 mothers. Consequently, its supply of diapers is dwindling quickly. The greatest need is for newborn, sizes 3, 4, 5.

Anyone interested in volunteering or donating diapers can contact Jená Hartman at 317-236-1433, 800-382-9836 ext. 1433, or e-mail her at jhartman@archindy.org.
