The smallest of Abbotsford Regional Hospital’s patients need a little help in the pyjama department.
Babies staying in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit there are often too small for the hospital issue clothing. So, the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation is gathering up new onesies to create a supply when needed.
The call is out for simple onesies and sleepers for preemies, newborns and babies 0-3 months. The hospital could also use some for sizes up to 24 months.
They say while they aren’t picky about colours and patterns, they must be button-up style, and they must be new. Zippers are not “user-friendly” for the hospital setting.
Anyone who can help is asked to contact the health care foundation, who will coordinate the delivery. Email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, call 604 851 4890 or stop by their office in Abbotsford Regional during business hours, Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
