Mothers In Need of Others (MINO- pronounced “minnow”) is a ministry that collects donations of  baby items and clothing for moms and babies and redistributes them to social service agencies and church outreach programs who work with parents and children who need them most in the Rochester community. We provide these programs with gently used  baby gear, baby and maternity clothes, and new feminine and personal hygiene products to help ease the stress on single parents and guardians enabling tight budgets stretch further as they struggle to raise their families.

We in the MINO ministry help people discover the joy and satisfaction of sharing their blessings with others. We recycle gently used baby items and clothing for moms and babies by redistributing them to those who need them most in the Rochester community.
