We Have Moved!!
The operations of Gently Hugged have moved into a new office and we are now located at the
lovely Bernardo Winery. This
facility is perfectly suited to our needs and we are so thrilled to have found a permanent home.
Thank you to all the community members who helped us find our ideal setting. We will be celebrating with an Open House on May 5 and hope you can join us!
As of January 22, 2013, we have collected 3197 pounds of donated clothing and distributed 224 tenderly
packed boxes/bags of clothing and blankets to San Diego babies in need.
We appreciate the heartwarming support of the community and look forward to helping many more families in the coming year.
Please make Gently Hugged a part of your holiday charitable giving this season.
Currently we are experiencing a shortage of sleepers in all sizes that help keep babies in need stay warm in the winter months. We accept new or gently used clothing and cash donations allow us to purchase these needed items.
We Are Thankful!
More is coming in daily, but at last count, Gently Hugged has collected 2600 pounds
of baby clothing through generous community giving. As a result, well over 180 boxes
/bags of clothing have been distributed to infants in need throughout San Diego
We are very grateful for this success, and are encouraged daily by the health providers who deliver the clothing and consistently report that new mothers are thrilled and overwhelmed by the compassion and generosity of the community for the welfare of their babies.
