The Preemie Project is located in Iowa, and supports newborns in need in local Newborn Intensive Care Units. Help is needed from volunteers to create the handmade items needed for newborns including blankets, sleepers, hats, and more. Learn how you can help by visiting The Preemie Project’s Volunteer website page. You can also find some free patterns to help you get inspired to sew for these itty bitty babies on the organization’s Pattern Collection page.
If you’re not in Iowa and would like to help newborns in your area, contact your local hospital NICU to find out what donations are needed, and if there may already be an organization in place helping to coordinate donations.
