Layette Committee to be Honored at Volunteer Recognition Luncheon

The Layette Committee of the Office of Women of the Diocese of San Jose has been chosen as one of the outstanding volunteers to be honored at the Volunteer Recognition Luncheon at the San Jose Convention Center on Friday, April 22, 2005. This annual event attended by more than 900 community members is sponsored by the Junior League of San Jose to celebrate the important contributions made by volunteers in the community.

The Layette Committee was formed in 1955 by Helen Hansen. Each year, the committee hosts a Layette Celebration in December to collect layette donations for needy families. Over 400 layettes are distributed throughout the year through Public Health nurses. Each layette contains essential items for the first few months of an infant's life including diapers, blankets, onesies, booties, and other items.

For donations, contact Lucile Bianco at (408) 730-4672. All clothing must be new or clean and in good condition. Only sizes from 0-6 months are accepted.
