Right before the holidays last year, we finally assembled and delivered our first batch of gift bags to our two partnered hospitals! At left you can see the wonderful volunteers who gave up part of their weekend to help put the gift bags together. We had quite the assembly line going! Thank you to each of you fabulous ladies who came out to help.
Below is a picture of some of the medical staff at Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights. They have received the majority of our gift bags so far. We were also able to bring them some Teeny Tears diapers for their Bereavement program, thanks to one of our local volunteers who worked so hard to sew the handmade mementos. Although we may never meet many of the families who receive our gifts, we have been told that they have been received gratefully.
Our desire is to kindle the flame of hope that burns in the heart of every NICU parent. And we look forward to serving these families for many years to come!
