The Nursery Needs Your Help!
Posted: Oct 7 2019 - 12:39pm

The Nursery has expanded! With all of the latest additions to the congregation, the United Parish nursery has expanded to make room for a nap room for our littlest members. The room will have cribs, a changing table, and comfortable chairs for breastfeeding/rocking a baby. While the room has been painted, we are looking for a bit of help with the decorating and furnishing of the room. This is the perfect chance to do some fall cleaning or to donate the baby stuff you no longer need. The nap room is looking for:

area rugs
blackout curtains (one for a window, two to cover door panes)
bassinet
good-condition baby blankets
nursery monitor
sound machine

Thank you for all your help! Contact Jenna at nursery@upbrookline.org.
