Serving Those Who Serve

The mission at the Susan M Tillis Foundation is to provide relief and support to new Military parents through tangible delivery of essential items. Reminding these families that their sacrifice is honored by all, baby bundles aims to be a bridge between the military family and their communities.

While the gift is seemingly small, the impact is huge as evidenced by some of the thank you notes we have received:

Most of the items included in the layette are donated at events hosted by supporters and held throughout the year or through our online Amazon Gift Registry.  Other needs, such as special requests for car seats, strollers and cribs, are met with the proceeds from grants and financial donations.

The culmination of our year is the annual RED, WHITE AND BUNDLED baby shower held in the spring. Volunteers and supporters from across the Carolinas celebrate our Military families among thousands of onesies, handmade quilts, sleepers, toys and mountains of diapers.  

RED, WHITE, AND BUNDLED grew out of a visit by Susan Tillis, the program's founder, to Fort Bragg in early 2015 where she saw firsthand the needs of our soldiers' families.  A few weeks later, with the help of a small network of volunteers, the first annual RED, WHITE, AND BUNDLED baby shower was held in the Cornelius, NC Town Hall Community Room.  Since our founding, RED, WHITE AND BUNDLED has provided gifts to over 8,500 babies.
