Boo in the NICU!
October 31, 2015
For many years, we’ve been creating “baby pumpkin patches” in Iowa NICUs for Halloween. This year we want to continue this trend, but with a fun twist. In addition to pumpkin hats and booties, we will be accepting all Halloween themed items (candy corn hats, etc) in addition to “costumes” for the babies! Ideas for “costumes” includes Disney Themed Hats, Animal Hats, Witch and Ghost Hats, etc. This is one donation where our volunteers can be as creative as they wish!
Boo in the NICU Donation!!
10 years ago, The Preemie Project started a tradition of donating cute cute hats to Iowa NICUs for Halloween. Originally we donated Pumpkin hats. We have expanded this donation to include “costume hats”. Ghosts and Goblins and Witches, Oh My!!
