United Way Day of Caring - Hand Print Kits & Ribbon Assembly!

September 23, 2009 -

A huge thank you to the Thomas Jefferson Area United Way and the Volunteers who came from the University of Virginia Health Services Library who helped assemble 400 Hand Print Kits and about 1,000 Awareness Ribbons on Cards! Also many thanks to PRA International in Charlottesville who donated the Training Rooms as an area to have these volunteers help with these projects.

The Infant Hand Print Kits:

These will go to the University of Virginia's CMC Neonatal Intenstive Care Unit - all families who have a baby admitted at UVA's NICU receive one of these kits to capture their child's small hand print at birth. We also provide a kit in our Expectant / New Parent Packages for families who have a baby diagnosed with congenital diaphragmatic hernia.

Below are a few pictures of the amazing group assembling ribbons on cards.

They also featured their good work and they should here
