Each year young girls ages 8-11, at The Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, get together for their yearly service project. The service project is incorporated with other activities for the girls that all end up coming together to teach them about community, service, and love. We were so fortunate to be the community charity they selected this year to help! The girls learned a little about preemies, our organization, and how they would be helping many moms and babies. Then their service got underway. They started with cutting, then filling, and finished off with sewing. Each, with the help of a mom, sewed one NICU positioner and one mom warmer (a heating pad for a NICU mom). I was so blessed to be with them during the event! To see how proud they were to be helping was just so wonderful. To see them working together and having fun while giving back, at such a young age, was also amazing. Words can't express the gratitude we feel from our 75 little angels! The Preemie Prints Sew & Craft division thanks them so much for their service. Here are a few pictures from the event!
