Catholic Charities offices in Lenoir and Winston-Salem operate Wee Care Shoppes providing free infant and toddler clothing and varied supplies to families and children in need. Clothing is available in sizes up to 2T. Staff and volunteers help participants with selecting clothing and supplies, including diapers, baby wipes, baby bottles, and blankets. READ HERE an article on this ministry from the Catholic News Herald.
Catholic Charities’ Wee Care assistance starts with a phone call. Call to schedule an appointment for item(s) to be picked-up in Lenoir and Winston-Salem. If a voicemail message is reached, please leave name, phone number and home city. The addresses and phone numbers of the Lenoir Office and the Winston-Salem Office are:
Lenoir Office, 328-B Woodsway Lane N.W.: 828-434-5710
(on the grounds of St. Francis of Assisi Church)
Winston-Salem Office, 1612 E. 14th St. N.E.: 336-727-0705
WANT TO DONATE? This ministry partners with other people and organizations and relies heavily on donations. Catholic Charities welcomes financial donations (go to www.ccdoc.org/donate) as well as donations of baby items, especially diapers and baby wipes. All clothing donations must be for small children (up to 2T) and must be new or clean & gently used. If you are making an individual donation of items, please call several days in advance to schedule a donation drop-off.
Perhaps your parish or school might consider hosting a “Diaper Drive”? Catholic Charities will provide “ready to go” flyers for bulletins and will arrange the pick-up of large parish/school bulk collections of diapers and baby wipes. Please call either the Lenoir or Winston-Salem Wee Care contact numbers to explore offering such assistance.
Please note that furniture (such as cribs, mattresses) and baby seats are not distributed and are not sought as donated items.
