Swaddling Clothes

Our Mission Statement: The mission of Swaddling Clothes is to share the mercy of Christ with our neighbors through the gifts of clothing, food, friendship, and the forgiving Word of God.

This is a new and exciting opportunity for charity and welcoming people through our doors. The committee receives, organizes, and arranges donated supplies for babies, infants, and young families in need. New faces from the community have found Holy Cross a welcome place, demonstrating the compassion of Christ.


Swaddling Clothes at Holy Cross Lutheran Church is a human care ministry in support of life. Members and friends of this congregation work to gather and assemble items for families in our Kansas City area from age newborn to 2T. We also provide maternity clothing for new mothers. We provide this at no cost to families in need. Items are either new or slightly used (clean) and are designed to help with basic needs. Everything is given out free.

Our center is open every 2nd Saturday of the month from 10:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M. We have an all-volunteer staff to assist families with their selections. We also provide either a story time or music time for the children. We desire to share the love of Christ and His forgiveness with all who enter and reach out to them with invitations to attend Church and Sunday school with us at Holy Cross. Our first opening day was in October of 2023 and we are learning as we grow.

We are located at 2003 NE Englewood Rd. KCMO 64118 on the south side of the church. Look for Swaddling Clothes signs.
