Family Support

Often preterm infants spend weeks to months in the hospital before they are ready to go home.  This can be a very stressful time for parents.  Many families have to travel hours to visit their little ones in specialized NICUs.  Some have other children at home and travel expenses can place a heavy financial burden. Items are purchased using proceeds from fundraising to support families during their stay in the NICU and for a short time when their little one becomes an NICU graduate.

We accept donations of the following items:
Burp cloths
Preemie and Newborn Clothing (new and gently used) - Please send only size 6 months and smaller per the request of the social workers. The greatest need is for preemie and newborn sizes.
Formula (with iron)
Baby Wash, Wipes and Lotion
Newborn diapers
Snap front sleepers, zip-up sleepers (Highly requested in the winter)
Non-Perishable Food Items for Families staying in the NICU (EasyMac, Beefaroni, etc)
Gas Cards
Phone Cards
Prepaid Cell Phones
