Christmas in July

The past two years, we had "Christmas in July". This is the time for all members to make and send in all Christmas related items (red/green/white and white and blue for the Jewish babies). By working on these items in July, we are able to enjoy the holidays more with our families and not be rushed or pushed to make last minute items for the babies at Christmas. We need a total of 66 blankets for the babies. Any other items like, hats, booties, outfits, etc. are greatly appreciated!

Also, we are collecting small items for the stockings again this year. One of our members has graciously made stockings for the babies again this year and we need to fill them with. Christmas ornaments, bib's, booties would be some ideas for the stockings. Any questions, please feel free to ask!

A special thank you to everyone for helping the babies. It brings a very special feeling to the parents and staff of the hospitals we serve! Thank you!!!

July 4th Items Needed

Just a reminder that we are in need of July 4th afghans for the two NICU's we serve. We are short and need 45 more afghans. You can also send in hats, booties, and outfits if you like. But we would love to have a blanket for all the babies in the two NICU's we serve. Thank you!!!
