Description: 
Please join us for a Yale School of Nursing sponsored, campus-wide, country-wide Yale Day of Service entitled Newborns in Need. 
 
Over the coming months we will work together to collect items essential to mothers and their newborns. Then, as a community, we gather to assemble newborn bags to be presented to new mothers at St. Raphael’s Hospital (SRH). Many of us at YSN worked in maternal-child health while students or on faculty at YSN, so many of us have direct ties to this program. Additionally, Yale Nurse-Midwives deliver babies at SRH.
 
A collection box for items will be placed at YSN, or donations may be mailed to:

Join us for YSN’s Day of Service, Newborns in Need, on May 13 2017 from 9:00 - 11:00 am to assemble the bags alongside Dean Kurth, YSN alumni, faculty, preceptors, staff, family, and friends. Breakfast will be provided. 
 
If you come, we appreciate you bringing an item for our clothing/diaper drive. Please contact Brenda Penner for details: brendaspenner@gmail.com
