Swaddling Clothes Comes to Silver Bay

Making ends meet can be difficult at times, especially for growing families facing financial stress from inflation and layoffs. That’s where Swaddling Clothes is trying to help.

A growing organization within the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, Swaddling Clothes believes that all children are a blessing from God, but they also understand that the costs of raising a family can be a challenge financially. Swaddling Clothes – Silver Bay is here to help all families along the North Shore who might need a little help making ends meet.

Swaddling Clothes is open at Faith Lutheran Church in Silver Bay on the third Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., beginning February 18th. Parents, including expectant mothers, can come and receive a package of diapers and wipes. Though Swaddling Clothes only offers diapers and wipes currently, they are also curating a collection of new and gently used children’s clothing and baby items. Once the collection is large enough, it will be open to families to take what they need. Parents can also request larger items, such as car seats or cribs, and Swaddling Clothes will work to connect them with the item.

Swaddling Clothes can be contacted by calling Faith Lutheran Church at 218-226-3908. They can also be reached through email at silverbay@swaddlingclothes.org or on Facebook under Swaddling Clothes at Silver Bay, MN.

Hello! My name is Haley Searls. I’ve loved writing from an early age, though my nonfiction writing at five years old consisted mainly of weather and gardening reports. I still have some of those early articles: “It’s sunny.” “It’s still sunny.” “It’s raining.” I’m glad to say my writing has improved since then. I wrote a guest post for the Silver Bay Public Library blog, and was the writer/editor of the newsletter for my American Heritage Girls troop. I have been writing for the North Shore Journal since June 2022. Besides writing, I love reading, drawing, photography, music, and spending time with family and friends. Two books that have really influenced my writing are Reforming Journalism by Marvin Olasky and Writer to Writer by Bodie and Brock Thoene. As a journalist, I want to share positive community interactions and inspire people to make lasting connections. Article topics that interest me are ones which show community activities and involvement. Such articles include community events, youth accomplishments, library programming, small businesses, local history, local artists and authors, art programs, and cultural events such as theater and dance. If you have an article idea, email the North Shore Journal with my name in the subject line! I look forward to hearing from you!
