Many families are unexpectedly admitted to the hospital. They don’t have a chance to pack a bag or have the help for people to bring them what they need. Some hospitals are not equipped to handle any needs other than the patients.
I have gotten near heartbreaking requests from staff not just for toiletry kits but nursing pads for the new moms whose babies are in the NICU, and chapstick for the patients and parents. Sometimes the littlest things are the hardest to get but very needed.
My goal is to help fill these requests, and if I can also donate fleece or fuzzy blankets to the families staying there. When we stayed, I would bring my own blanket from home and it brought me immense comfort to rest in something comfortable than the stale thin hospital blankets.
To collect supplies and donate the first round of toiletry kits (bags with toothbrushes, shampoos/conditioner, etc…) and fleece blankets to Kaiser Roseville by Christmas. All donations need to be in for this by December 13th.
