Your donations help us:
>> Continue and expand our current local outreach programs - in Bryan College Station and beyond.
Including the delivery and donations of NICU gift bundles to all three local NICUs. Baylor Scott & White, St. Joseph Health System, and The College Station Medical Center. These NICU gift bundles bring comfort and support to families traveling the NICU journey with their premature or critically ill baby. In addition your support allows us to continue donating our positioning devices to all three hospitals on a regular basis. Hospital staff use our positioner in helping to simulate a womb like environment for a premature baby. The device aids in positioning, warming, and containment. Your support also allows us to continue to serve meals at our monthly NICU hope meetings, family events, and more.
>> Help with our expansion efforts of Preemie Prints Sew & Craft and angel gifts.
>> Help with our future plans of opening the Brazos Valley NICU Support House. This house (and office space) will serve many purposes. It will allow for overnight stays free of charge for family members who have a baby in the NICU and for those families experiencing a loss. Traveling family members will be able to use the room as well. Will house our offices, provide meeting space for a variety of support meetings and sewing meetings. In addition we plan to have an angel memorial garden and a library dedicated to NICU, preemie, and angel families. If you or someone you know has space available (house or office space) that you may consider donating, all or a portion of, to us please contact us.
