Southside hospital is located in Bayshore on Long Island. They deliver approximately 200 babies a month. Unfortunately most of these babies are born to families that have nothing. That is where we come in. I belong to a group called Hugs for Hope. We donate to hospitals in 3 states. We make and donate blankets and hats in fullterm and preemie sizes and sweaters in fullterm sizes. I am in charge of collecting and delivering items to Southside. We are a small group and do our best to give as much as we can. Sadly, we cannot keep up with the needs they have. I have started this blog to try and attract knitters, crocheters and sewers on LI to help us. I am hoping to keep the nursery fully stocked at all times. Whenever I make a delivery I am greeted by someone saying they are so happy to see me because they are out of hats or blankets. It would be great to never have to hear that again.
