Denver Health’s Newborns in Need program exists to give every baby we deliver the healthy start he or she deserves. The program collects donations of cash and baby items throughout the year. Volunteers then assemble the baby essentials in Warm Welcome bags to be distributed at the hospital to new families who are struggling financially. In 2016, we distributed more than 3,500 Warm Welcome bags, each with a retail value of approximately $120. Each gift bag contains diapers, a sleep sack, bibs, socks, hats, sleepers, baby lotion and shampoo, a stuffed animal, and a book. The program also provides portable cribs and car seats for parents who are unable to afford them. The Newborns In Need program is sustained entirely through the generosity of private donors.
