Holiday Help: Birthright of Fredericksburg

Want to help out this holiday season? You can find a list of most area opportunities from the Rappahannock United Way. But to keep these in your mind, I’ll be posting a new chance to help each day. Today’s opportunity is from Birthright of Fredericksburg.

The group is looking for items for baby layettes. Organizers need: newborn-sized clothes for boys and girls, onesies, socks, hats and newborn diapers.

For details, call 540/371-6119 or email

You can drop off donated items at Birthright’s office: 405 Westwood Park; Fredericksburg, Va. 22401.
