Pumpkin Donation Reminder
Hats and booties for our upcoming Pumpkin Donation have started to roll in. They are too adorable!
We will not be having a work group to create the blankets for this donation. So we need even more help with blankets this time around!
Here is a reminder with all of the details:
For the 4th year in a row, we’re creating our own baby pumpkin patch at the UIHC! We will be donating pumpkin themed hats, booties and blankets to the NICU and PICU.

Click here for a pumpkin hat pattern designed by Michelle Edwards. This is a brand new pattern sized for a newborn AND it is adorable. Thank you Michelle!
