This year, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, Little Company of Mary Hospital is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. As part of this day of generosity, we will be working to raise $5,000 in one day so that an additional Nesting Room can be furnished in our Neonatal Special Care Unit here at Little Company of Mary Hospital.
A Nesting Room is a space allocated for families whose baby requires additional care in the Special Care Unit after mom’s discharge from the hospital. This room offers families both physical and mental comfort, knowing that this extended “stay” on campus enables accessibility to their newborn.
This one-day campaign will be known here on campus as #GivingLCMWishes but serves a much greater purpose. On this day, we not only participate in this global #GivingTuesday movement which will benefit families in our community during this time of Thanksgiving, but it also serves to introduce our new Wish List campaign, helping provide specific departments in our hospital with resources needed and requested by patients on an ongoing basis.
