Memory Boxes

The Preemie Project donates memory boxes to Iowa hospital infant bereavement programs that request them. The boxes provide a place for families to save special items in memory of their child.

To request boxes for your Iowa hospital, please email

Two sizes of boxes are requested by the hospitals:

  1. Large: Made from photo boxes that are 7.5 x 4 x 11 rectangular – WHITE ONLY!
  2. Small: Made from white boxes that are 3.75″ x 3.75″ x 3.4″ square

We welcome donations of supplies to be used at the workshops:

    • Empty white photo boxes

    • Mod Podge Liquid finish
    • Flannel material, child and pastel colors, and prints. Small and subdued prints are best
    • Felt in all colors, squares or yardage
