I craft, how can I help?

Do you have a hankering to take your craft to the philanthropic level?  We asked our Child Life and Mom/Baby departments what the current needs are.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by donations of baby hats from generous community members. We currently have a need for smaller blankets, 18- by 18-inch in any color or pattern for the NICU, and also blankets in more subdued pastel colors and patterns for those families who have experienced fetal loss.” said Xury Broyles, administrative assistant in Women and Children’s Services

In the pediatric department, Child Life assistant Jamie Antrim explains there is a desperate need for “Fun cotton surgery caps and pillow cases for kids in child-friendly patterns. We love a healthy mix of patterns that would appeal to both young children and teens.”

The video below was created by Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona Troop 87 to demonstrate how to make the pediatric surgery caps. The Girl Scouts, who were 5th through 7th graders (juniors and cadettes), were involved in the filming and editing of the video as well as making over 60 surgery caps they thought would appeal to all ages.
