TPP does NOT donate regular hats to Iowa NICUs. The hospitals we support request that we only donate Holiday/Special donation hats and costumes.
The only hats we need from volunteers are Holiday/Special Event hats or hats for bereavement purposes.
If you enjoy making hats, be sure to watch our EVENTS CALENDAR for all the latest news about upcoming special/holiday donations.
TPP does not donate blankets of any kind to Iowa NICUs.
The only blankets we ask volunteers to make are knit or crochet blankets for bereavment purposes. Colors needed for those blankets are solid white, solid light pink or solid light blue (baby blue). Sizes needed are 15 inches x 15 inches up to 36 inches x 36 inches. We have a HUGE need for blankets for bereavement purposes.
In an effort to combat sudden infant death syndrome, most Iowa NICUs have stopped taking donations of blankets in order to model safe sleep practices.
