First Delivery of 2009



My Dad and I made our first delivery of baby things of 2009. The cab was filled with the preemie sized items, I think there were 6 large bags. And the bed is filled with bags of newborn items. We put them in bags instead of boxes because they cannot keep boxes in the areas where they store things for the babies. Boxes can harbor bacteria and other yucky things. When we used to use boxes they would have to empty them all which took time the nurses didn't have. We then started using large clear garbage bags.
