Angel Gowns-Capital Region, NY

Angel Gowns-Capital Region, NY “Angel Gowns-Capital Region, NY" is an all-volunteer (ALL UNPAID) group helping parents who have suffered the loss of a baby by providing burial gowns, FREE of charge. We serve over 60 facilities from ME to FL and also special requests.

“Little Angel Gowns" is an all-volunteer group helping parents who have suffered the loss of a baby by providing burial gowns, free of charge, to the families. We hope to alleviate further stress on a family who is already suffering the loss of their loved one. Gowns are made from donated wedding gowns, First Communion dresses and other formalwear and transformed into angel gowns by our seamstresses. We offer these gowns for babies weighing under one pound up to approximately 13 pounds. This group was started in 2014 by a retired NICU nurse, Marie Murphy, in Indianapolis, Indiana. Now, there are chapters sprouting all over the country and we launched a new chapter in The Capital Region in April, 2015. What we Need-Seamstresses/Sewers who are willing to volunteer a few hours of their time to create an “angel gown” from a “dream gown.” All simple patterns and instructions will be provided...Donations of white and ivory wedding gowns, first class postage stamps, copy paper, printing services and gift cards to Joann's, Target, Walmart and Staples are also needed. This is a non profit 501 (c) (3) and any donations will be met with a tax credit form, if desired.

Mission: We make burial gowns out of wedding gowns for babies who are called to heaven. The following is a poem that our volunteer, Dale McGrath Low, wrote for us in January 2016.. "Born to be an Angel" I’m a small voice from heaven; I’m the one you waited for. Right now your heart is broken; you expected so much more. Only God knows the reason; my feet never touched the earth. Why He called me home again, before I ever reached my birth. Still, I know my life had meaning, you must know that too. I was the murmur beneath your heart; the purest part of you. I truly feel that I was blessed, even if my part was small. I felt all the love you had for me, because you gave me all. This world wasn’t meant for me, I needed more to survive. But Heaven is total perfection; so someone like me will thrive. We’re created to serve a purpose; mine is to watch over you. I was born to be an Angel; I'll be with you in all that you do. When your purpose is fulfilled and the new earth is complete, I will run into your arms; I’ll feel the earth beneath my feet. I'll be wearing my 'Little Angel Gown'. I’ll be wearing it today, And although I’ll be in heaven; you know "I’m never far away!"

Our Story

“Angel Gowns-Capital Region, NY" is a volunteer group based in Albany, NY helping parents who have suffered the loss of a baby by providing burial gowns for their babies. We are ALL UNPAID VOLUNTEERS and rely on donations of time, energy and supplies to carry out our mission. We hope to alleviate further stress on a family who is already suffering the loss of their loved one. Our angel gowns are made from donated wedding gowns, First Communion dresses and other donated fabrics and are transformed into “angel gowns” by our special seamstresses. We offer these gowns for babies weighing under one pound up to (approximately) 13 pounds. Gowns are ALWAYS FREE OF CHARGE to the families who need them. Our NY Team was founded by a Capital Region resident in Feb. 2015 as a support for another group. In 2018, we decided that we could function more efficiently as an independent entity keeping to our one clear focus-helping these grieving families. What we Need-

*Seamstresses-willing to volunteer a few hours of their time to create an “angel gown” from a wedding gown. Simple patterns, instructions and support will be provided.

*Donations-white and ivory wedding gowns, light pink and light blue satiny material, white and ivory thread, white and ivory 1/8” and 1/4” ribbon, gift cards to Joann's, Target, Walmart and Staples and pre-paid VISA cards to help with shipping costs. We also have an Amazon “Wish List” set up. If you click on the link on our home page, you will see up-to-date items that are needed. Please “like” and “share” our page to get our message out. We also have our gowns pictured on Pinterest....search...”Angel Gowns-Capital Region NY-2015”, "Angel Gowns-Capital Region, NY-2016", “Angel Gowns-Capital Region, NY-2017”, “Angel Gowns-Capital Region, NY-2018” and “Angel Gowns-Capital Region, NY-2019.
