Families caring for their infants in Franciscan Health’s Crown Point hospital neonatal intensive care unit received a bundle of helpful items including toys and blankets from a regional organization that specializes in assisting ailing children.
The Dyer-based Flamini Foundation recently donated 50 comfort bags to Franciscan Health Crown Point. Each bag is filled with useful items including: puzzle books, lotions, throw blankets, bottled water, snacks, stuffed animals, tissues, notebooks and pens, slippers, eye masks and other items that mothers and fathers might need while caring for their babies in the NICU.
Some of the bags also will be provided to parents at the Franciscan Health Hammond NICU.
The Flamini Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides gifts and support to families and their sick children during the holiday season in metropolitan Chicago and Northwest Indiana. The group’s comfort bags are provided for parents of children who are hospitalized due to life threatening situations.
