As an outreach ministry for sick children in the HSC Pediatric Center (formerly the Hospital for Sick Children), The Carolina Club of New Southern Rock Baptist Church held its annual baby shower recently at the church located at 750 Buchanan St. N.W. The club served a delectable meal to the members and friends of the church who had contributed to the shower either by donating clothes or giving monetary support.

During the shower, the committee accepted and had on display new or slightly used clothing that will be given to the Pediatric Center. According to Sue Hamlin, president of the club, donations of clothing, sizes for infants, toddlers and boys and girls ages 6 through 12, will be accepted up through July 1. There is also a need for diapers, sneakers and musical crib toys.

The monetary donations will benefit the church’s scholarship fund. Checks or money orders should be made payable to New Southern Rock Baptist Church – Carolina Club, and sent to NSR Baptist Church, P.O. Box 60825, Washington D.C. 20039. Call Hamlin at 301-270-2488 for more information about this community outreach ministry.
