Work Group Weekend

What are TPP Work Group Weekends?
For new volunteers, these weekends are spent sewing blankets for the babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC). Sewing skills are not necessary for participation! We’re proud to say that we average 200 finished blankets in one weekend.
