Wish Lists - Donations

As spring arrives and we enjoy the great outdoors, let’s also remember Parkland patients in need. Please consider bringing a newborn or preemie clothing item, diapers, or anything from the Wish List, to one of our remaining events or book groups before the close of the FWC calendar year. Or drop off a donation anytime at Gloria’s or Mary’s home.

We know many of you have contributed items already this year, especially at the opening luncheon in October and the December High Tea, but if you could manage one more donation, it would be so appreciated by Parkland, as they are struggling with very few donations from other sources.

As you can see in Parkland Volunteer Coordinator, Lisa Little’s response to our last big donation drop-off in December, every item counts:
“Many thanks, dear friends!!! We are in desperate need of these items – we have been totally out for the last couple of months. May you and your families have the most wonderful holiday season!”

Our thanks to those who have donated Parkland items and/or magazines for Aston Clinics since our last newsletter: Joanne Dimeff, Carol Eberhart, Mary Greene, Yael Lenkinski, Laurie Clark Olsen, Jean Pennant, Peg Pesicka, Carol Tyler, Pam Waber, and Linda Willson.

We are about to place an order for another 460 infant board books for the NICU. They continue to be an important element in educating young mothers and stimulating preemie infants who spend many weeks in the hospital’s care.

When bringing donations to any FWC event, please look for Gloria Rege, Mary Greene, or Karen Westergaard. Donations may also be dropped off or you can bring them to the AM Book Group meetings for pick up by Mary Greene. Please email fwcwomen@gmail.com for more information.

Thank you for supporting these projects!
