Baby Formula Collection Challenge

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

Philippians 4: 6

Throughout the month of January, the Love for Life Group at Holy Cross will be hosting a friendly competition to collect baby formula and other baby supplies benefiting two local charities: A Better Choice and The Treehouse.


The congregation will be divided up into two teams – Myers Martyrs (If your last name begins with A-K) and Snows Saints (If your last name begins with L-Z). The pastor who has collected more at the end of January will be named the Reigning Reverend and receive the Golden Baby Bottle.



  • Although we are also accepting diapers and wipes, we want to encourage participants to purchase formula because that is a huge need.
  • Monetary gifts are also welcome, as this will allow Holy Cross to purchase in bulk using our tax-exempt status.
  • The preferred type of baby formula is the orange (sensitivity) and blue (advantage) Walmart Brand. ¬†Many of the moms that utilize the organizations we are donating to use this brand because it is WIC approved and they can afford it when they are supporting themselves.
