The Preemie Project seeks to provide comfort and support to critically ill infants and their families in Newborn Intensive Care Units in Iowa. We achieve our mission through the support of a devoted group of local and national volunteers.
The Preemie Project again, finds itself overloaded on regular hats that are given to babies when they are admitted to Iowa NICUs. If you like to make and donate hats, please limit your donations to hats for our special holiday donations. See our calendar of events for all the information on our special donations. We also need white hats and booties in all sizes for our Infant Bereavement program.

The Preemie Project has an urgent need for new Pack ‘n Plays. The Pack ‘n Plays are given to families that do not have a crib for their child and do not have the means to purchase one.
We have created “Baby Registries” to make it easy for you to donate items needed by NICU families that are facing financial crisis. You can easily purchase pack ‘n plays from any of these registries and have them sent to us. You do not need to limit your choices to those on the registries.
Please see our Urgent Needs List for an updated list of items that we are most in need of.

The Preemie Project is happy to announce that we will be providing support to Unity Point Health Trinity Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Bettendorf, Iowa! We were contacted by a NICU nurse from that hospital requesting any support we might be able to give.
We will make donations to this hospital 2 or 3 times per year. Donations will include hats, booties, blankets, bereavement packages, memory boxes, developmental hearts and NICU bedding.
The hospital has about 1000 deliveries per year. Currently they have about 70 NICU admits per year and are expanding the number of beds in the unit.
Please visit our website programs page for information you need to craft for the babies.
