Prematurity Awareness Month Fundraiser

November is National Prematurity Awareness Month.  In 2010, there were 4,473 preterm births in Iowa.  Unfortunately, preterm birth leaves thousands of Iowa families in crisis and needing support.  In honor of National Prematurity Awareness Month, we are campaigning to raise $4,473 to support families in Iowa NICUs. Funds will be raised between November 1st and November 17 and used to purchase supplies to support our programs at rock bottom prices on Black Friday (November 29th).  Click here for more information and to find out how you can donate today!

New Donation Center

We are so sad to announce the closing of Crazy Girl Yarn Shop in Coralville.  We would like to thank the staff at Crazy Girl for supporting our mission by being a donation site, ordering baby yarn for our volunteers and hosting our knit-in earlier this year. They will be greatly missed!

With the closing of Crazy Girl, we started searching for another site for our Coralville/North Liberty area volunteers.  We are thrilled to announce that Peg Griffin, owner of Common Threads Quilt Shop, has graciously offered her shop as a new donation center!  Common Threads is located off of 965 on Zeller street in North Liberty.  We encourage you to visit the Common Threads website for more information.  We hope you will stop in to visit and take a look at her selection of quilting fabric!  Please join us in thanking Peg Griffin for her support!
