Baby Formula Collection Challenge

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”

1 Timothy 4:12

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.
