2017 NICU Bedding Donation Drive

TPP is holding a drive for cute, colorful bedding for Iowa NICUs.  We hope you will take advantage of the great fabric sales and pick some up for the babies.  You can read all about how to make bedding for Iowa NICU beds on our events calendar.

The Preemie Project does NOT need donations of the following items:

-Regular knit, crochet hats in all preemie and newborn sizes. We do still need white hats in all sizes for our infant bereavement program. We also have a huge need for hats and booties for our holiday donations. See our Calendar of Events.

-Blankets (knit, crochet, sewn, tied fleece). The only blankets needed are knit or crochet in solid white, solid pale pink and solid pale blue blankets for our infant bereavement program. Sizes needed for bereavement blankets are 15 in x 15 in up to 36 in x 36 in.

-Developmental Hearts.  The Preemie Project is overstocked with developmental hearts.  But, we have a list of Groups and Hospitals that request Developmental Hearts. Please send any hearts made to one of the addresses listed.

The Preemie Project DOES NOT need donations of regular hats.  We have enough regular (non-holiday) hats, in all sizes, to last well over a year.  Please limit hat donations to hats for our special/holiday donations.  See our Calendar of Events for information on upcoming donations

We also need white hats for our infant bereavement program.  You can find pattern suggestions for hats for bereavement on our pattern page.
