On May 5, Meriter hosted a reunion for families that have had a baby (or babies) graduate from our NICU (Newborn Intensive Care Unit) within the last 5 years. We were pleased that over 450 people attended the event. Many families also walked… in the March of Dimes Walk for Babies.
Meriter’s NICU families had the opportunity to purchase commemorative t-shirts and raffle tickets to win the 6 unique baskets including the Grand prize an IPAD, Bucky Badger, Family Fun Activities, Community Activities/Restaurants certificates, Tool kit and Date Night. The donations will support our new family care suite. The suite will allow a family to stay at the hospital if their newborn is in the NICU.
The children had their photo taken and then colored a Mother’s Day card. They also had the opportunity to enjoy the following activities: bean bag toss, sucker tree, Plinko, duck pond, bean counting, temporary tattoos, a Rainbow Play System, and meet our therapy Dogs on Call.
We would like to thank all of our volunteers and donors that allowed this event to be such a success.
