Arizona New Borns

Arizona Needy Newborns volunteers invite the community to join with them at their annual  Christmas Stocking Stuffer 10 a.m.-noon on Saturday, Nov. 17, to help stuff Holiday stockings for delivery to families of infants at various hospitals throughout Maricopa County and beyond.

The organization has chapters in Ahwatukee and Mesa. This special annual event will be  held at the Church of the Latter Day Saints at 1415 E. Southern Ave., Mesa, where the Mesa chapter meets monthly.

“We meet at churches but we aren’t a church group,” explained long-time president Marilyn Freeman of Mesa.

Volunteers can select items from two tables that are designated for boys and girls. After selecting a provided stocking, they can peruse the tables and select the items to place inside.

The goal is to fill up to 220 stockings in two hours said Doris Dorwart, who heads the Ahwatukee chapter that meets monthly on the third Friday at Esperanza Lutheran Church, 2601. E. Thunderhill Place. The Mesa chapter meets the first Friday of each month.
