Applewood Plumbing Heating & Electric awards the August $1,000 Caring Community Giveaway to Warm Hearts Warm Babies.
Warm Hearts Warm Babies provides clothing, blankets and quilts, baby gowns, sleepers, t-shirts and other essential baby items to local hospitals, shelters and other organizations that provide for premature and newborn infants and their families in Colorado.
“We appreciate the efforts of those who volunteer with Warm Hearts Warm Babies. I’m thrilled they are the winner of our giveaway as they are such a deserving group,” said John Ward, president of Applewood.
Warm Hearts Warm Babies operates with an all-volunteer staff which allows all contributions to be directed towards the babies. They have over 500 volunteers and service 35 to 40 agencies in Colorado. The volunteers at Warm Hearts Warm Babies produce 5 to 6 thousand items per month for the agencies they serve.
The goal of Warm Hearts Warm Babies is to provide some of the basic needs to parents who may not have the resources that they need once they leave the hospital and take their infants home. Items in the layettes they deliver include: wipes, diapers, a baby bottle, blankets, socks and much more. All items are delivered in a beautiful handmade tote bag.
“With the help of Applewood’s $1,000 Caring Community Giveaway, we are able to purchase the items we need for our layettes,” said Lori Kratzer, General Director at Warm Hearts Warm Babies.
