Local woman gives the gift of comfort to NICU families

A special thank you to Cassie Mason for her generous donation of these handmade mini minky blankets.

The infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette, Wyoming will benefit greatly from these when inside incubators. Mothers will wear the blankets for a time, and then it will then be placed with the baby while in an incubator when the mother can't be there. These blankets provide comfort and help infants bond with their mom and thrive. Comfort items such as these mini minkys allow premature babies to go home with their parents faster.

Thank you, Cassie, for thinking of our littlest and most delicate patients.

Due to infection prevention standards, CCH can only accept brand new items—we may not accept gently used plush toys, clothing or blankets; used books are taken on a case-by-case basis. Items must also come from a smoke free establishment. If you wish to donate items to Campbell County Health, please contact Community Relations at 307.688.1580.
