Project #28: New Jersey, Cooper Hospital

From April 15 to May 15, 2012 we will be making items to donate to both the NICU unit (newborn intensive care unit) and the mother/infant unit of Cooper Hospital in Camden, New Jersey.

The NICU unit usually has preemies. Items can be any size, color, and fiber that are appropriate to give to new moms, newborns, and preemies. The blog called Caring For Cooper is a place you can go for further information and to look at past donations. Though it is not a currently updated blog, the project is still ongoing.

Our contact, Barbara, delivers items four times a year, usually around a holiday. The next will be the Summer/July 4th delivery. After that, there will be a Fall/Halloween, Winter/Christmas delivery. If there are more items to deliver, she sometimes goes to deliver items for other special days.

This project has "officially" ended.  However, Cooper always accepts donations.  Please email me for address information.  Please remember to print and attach the Sharing Our Gifts tag when you send your  item(s). Happy Creating!
