Crafting Needs Update

Please note the following updates to our Crafting Needs:

   

  • Pink and Blue hats and booties in 3 -5 lb and 6-8 lb sizes. We have an excess of other colors.  We always need more boy hats than girl.
  •    

  • Red, White and Blue Hats and booties for our 4th of July Donation. See our calendar of events. Remember, for every 8 hats, make 1 1-3lb, 3 3-5lb, 3 6-8lb, 1 9-11lb.
  •    

  • In accordance with the Safe Sleep Recommendations by the American Society of Pediatrics, The University of Iowa Children’s Hospital NICU and St. Lukes’s NICU, Cedar Rapids, IA will no longer accept blankets to pass out to families. Therefore, The Preemie Project is finding itself with a huge overstock of blankets. Until further notice, we DO NOT need donations of blankets to send home with families

    We have a NEW Address

    ATTENTION: Effective Immediately, The Preemie Project has a new mailing address. From here on, if you are mailing items, the address is

    The Preemie Project
    2607 Flagstone Court
    Coralville, IA 52241

    Volunteers that have been with us for the last 10 years will recognize this as our “old address”, otherwise known as TPP Headquarters. We are giving up our Post Office box because it has gotten too difficult to get donations picked up on a regular basis.

    We have not turned in our keys to the PO box yet and will not for several weeks. So, if you have sent a package there, we will get it picked up. Once we turn in a change of address all mail will be forwarded for 6 months. No worries if you accidentally send it to the wrong place.
