Giving Knows No Age

HannahTeddyBearsThe Foundation Office often gets calls from local individuals, churches or other organizations looking to make donations, whether it may be baby items, clothing, stuffed animals or hygiene products. We are always thrilled to take calls from these individuals and groups as the need for items is always great. A special young lady, Hannah, recently made a gift that we wanted to share with you during this season of giving.

Each year, Hannah takes the money she receives for her birthday and buys the necessary supplies to make blankets. She then calls her friends and hosts a blanket making party. This year marked Hannah's 14th birthday, and we were so thrilled to receive a call from her stating that she had fleece blankets adorned with stuffed animals to donate. We were pleased to accept Hannah's donation. The blankets were placed in our Stork’s Nest, a closet filled with baby items that is available to mothers receiving care at our Women's Outpatient Center. Mothers are able to "buy" items from the Stork’s Nest by redeeming points they earned for attending prenatal care appointments and educational sessions.

Thanks to Hannah, our babies will stay warm and cozy this winter. If you too are interested in making a donation of any kind, please contact our Foundation Office at 414-447-2188 or give online.
