Warmth, comfort and security – a receiving blanket can provide so much for newborns in their first few days of life. Unfortunately, many new moms who deliver at Swedish Covenant Hospital have limited resources and can’t afford a receiving blanket.
This Mother’s Day, please consider a donation of $3 to provide one new mom in need with a receiving blanket that she can wrap her newborn baby in when going home from the hospital. Your gift will provide a new mom with the ability to calm her newborn with a swaddle and to provide warmth and preserve caloric intake for weight gain during the first few fragile days of life.
Each year, more than 2,000 babies start their lives at Swedish Covenant Hospital; 60 percent of their mothers are low-income. As a non-profit hospital serving one of the most diverse communities in the city, Swedish Covenant Hospital relies on the support of friends to fund initiatives to meet the unique needs of our patients.
Will you help to provide a warm and secure start for our community’s newest members?
If you would like to donate new or unused receiving blankets you may drop them off between May 1 and May 21 in the Galter Medical Pavilion Lobby, Galter LifeCenter Entrance and the 3rd floor lobby in the Main Building.
