04 Aug Charity for Aug. 5-11: Giving is a Family Tradition (GiFT)
GiFT’s mission is to provide support to families with critically ill newborns. Babies requiring admittance to neonatal intensive care units (NICU) may experience prolonged hospitalization of several months, even up to and beyond their first birthday. In addition to being concerned about the survival of their newborn, many families suffer financial hardships due to missed work, medical bills, and unexpected expenses during NICU hospitalization. GiFT aims to alleviate some of the stress experienced in this circumstance by providing infant care essentials, transportation assistance, and bereavement support to families in need.
