Pajama Drive Benefiting Preemies
& Their Parents
The 9th Annual PJ’s for Preemies pajama drive will be held from November 1, 2018 to January 31, 2019. The pajama drive focuses on collecting clothing for premature babies, which is then donated to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Covenant Hospital in Saginaw.
About Our Drive
PJ's for Preemies
The day I found out I was pregnant, I figured I would be one of those first time mothers that would have a “normal delivery”. That was, until about half way through my pregnancy, when some complications started. I was having blood pressure problems, swelling, and was told I needed to stop working. Then, the doctor’s appointments went from once a month to once a week for about 2 months in order to have stress tests done every time I was there.
During one of those stays, the doctors decided to give me a steroid shot to help with my son’s lung development. I had no idea I would have him 4 days later! This was 7 weeks before my due date, and I was scared!
Kolton was born via c-section, weighing in at 4lbs. 9oz. and 18 inches long. He progressed well and his NICU stay only lasted 2 ½ weeks before he came home. However, during his stay in the NICU, we had no clothing small enough to fit him. The hospital had some clothing but not a lot.
So starting that day, I decided I needed to help this hospital and the hundreds of babies and parents that have to visit the NICU. This is when “PJs for Preemies” was started.
