Last November, we held an event to make 100 memory boxes and with the wonderful volunteers, we finished in only a couple hours. The hospital has reached out in need of more to support their patients and we will hold an event on September 12, 2017 to make enough to stock Perinatal Loss Unit at the Johns Hopkins Hospital through 2018.
JHH cares for more than 100 families each year suffering from stillbirth or early infant loss and provides each family with a box to hold small keepsakes from their hospital stay, including the infant’s foot prints, hat, hair clippings or other support items. They rely on fundraising to purchase the boxes.
Boxes and simple embellishments will be provided to create beautiful hand-made memory boxes at the studio in Pasadena. This event is free and open to the public and no experience is necessary. Volunteers are needed to complete our goal of 100 hand-decorated boxes. Boxes will be delivered to the hospital ASAP.
