New Hanover Regional Medical Center NICU, FALL 2016 Delivery

Nice Story From
New Hanover Regional Medical Center
Employee Web News

Hi Michele,
I thought you'd want to see this nice story in our employee news. 

Thanks again for your generous donation


Sea Trail Grandmas Donate Hundreds of Items for NICU Patients
Sea Trail Grandmas visited the Betty H. Cameron Hospital in late October to donate fall outfits for babies in the NICU. The group donates sewn and crocheted items three times each year. The fall donation included pumpkin hats so the hospital's smallest patients had something special to wear on Halloween.
In total 27 volunteers from Sea Trail Plantation in Sunset Beach made 648 outfits, blankets and cuddler dolls for NICU patients.
NICU Manager Brandi Garris was on hand to thank the volunteers. "Our NICU parents are always so excited when they come in and see their baby in a special, hand-made outfit," she said. "This donation is truly appreciated."
Director of Volunteer Services Eileen McConville thanked the group for their 3,003 hours of service on this project. The NHRMC Auxiliary donated $1,000 to the Sea Trail Grandmas last year, and a part of that money was used to purchase a new sewing machine.
