High Risk Hope is a for purpose organization that provides support, encouragement, information and resources to women and families who are experiencing a high risk pregnancy resulting in hospital bed rest, potential premature birth, and neonatal intensive care after delivery.
WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?
The Project Helping group of volunteers will help HRH assemble NICU and bedrest napsacks, which are distributed to families containing items they need to survive either bedrest and/or their infant’s stay in the NICU. The items ensure a family’s basic needs are met so the parents can focus on the health of their baby. We will organize, sort, and assemble these much needed items. As space is limited, make sure to register before participating in this awesome event!
