Join us in our tradition of donating Hawkeye and Cyclone themed hats, booties and bedding to Iowa NICUs. Items are donated during the week prior to the Iowa-Iowa State or Cy-Hawk football game. This donation is a particular favorite of our volunteers, nursing staff and of course the families! The nurses look forward to this donation so they can deck out the warmer beds, isolettes, cribs and babies out in Hawkeye and Cyclone gear for the NICU families! The NICUs love the Cy-Hawk bedding that is sewn and donated by TPP to liven up the game experience.
We need about 2/3 of the items to be Hawkeye themed and 1/3 to be Cyclone themed.
Please visit the Volunteer Information section of our website for more crafting information.
You can read all about how to sew NICU bedding on our website.
We are hoping to bring this donation to as many NICUs as possible. The more items we receive, the more hospitals we can support!
