Hats, Booties and Blankets are donated to the hospitals we support at holidays and special events throughout the year to bring warmth and comfort to preterm and critically ill infants and their families. Volunteers make holiday hats and booties sized for infants weighing from 1lb up to 11lbs.
Hats and Booties
Holiday donations for 2017 include Easter, 4th of July, Cy-Hawk Challenge (UI vs ISU football), Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas
The Preemie Project cannot donate items from smoking homes to be given to hospitalized infants. Research has proven that tobacco and tobacco smoke clings to furniture, clothes, walls. This is called “third hand smoke”. “Third hand smoke” cannot be adequately washed out of fabrics and thus raises the risks for many illness in children. Please see the March of Dimes website for more information.
