A Good Week for the NICU Book Project

This week we've had three different donations to our NICU book project.

Michelle donated these three books:
The McKay Dee foundation donated six books, and for some reason, the picture of those books got eaten by cyberspace, and I've already packaged up the books. Sorry.

Meredith sent us two boxes of new and used books. These three stacks will go to two different school classrooms and the NICU waiting room.
The next two pictures of books also came from Meredith Malan. They have already been made into packets of books for the NICU babies. Thank you, Meredith for your generous donation to the NICU.

We are thankful for the donations we receive as it allows us to give books to even more families. Thank you to our generous contributors this well. 

We are currently in need of paperbacks, board books, and hard back books for the babies. We also need two-gallon sized zip lock bags. We prefer the no name bags as they don't have writing on them. Pastel letter size cardstock is also needed to make inserts for the packets. 

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.

Read to a child today even if that child is you.
