New! Welcome Boxes and Lullaby Boxes
A donation of $30 gives a box of personal hygiene and cleaning products to a family in need. A donation of $60 gives a box of baby items to a new mom or mother-to-be. A case manager will even pick it up at our resource room and deliver it!
Mothers In Need of Others (MINO) is a ministry that collects donations — maternity and baby items, clothing for babies/toddlers (preemie-5t), and cleaning products — and redistributes them to social service agencies and church outreach programs who work with parents and children who need them most in the Rochester community. We provide these programs with new and gently-used items FREE OF CHARGE to help ease the stress on single parents and guardians enabling tight budgets stretch further as they struggle to raise their families. The items are picked up by the case managers and are taken directly to their clients. For the privacy and convenience of the individuals who are receiving the items, we ask that they do not come to pick up the items themselves. If you are a caseworker in need of items for your client or a donor who has items to donate to our resource room, please call or email for an appointment.
We were recently featured in the newsletter from Rochester Regional Coalition Against Human Trafficking. Check it out!
