PJs for Preemies

The Medical Assistant Club – Saginaw (MACS) working in collaboration with the Student Nurse’s Association (SNA) in Midland collected new and gently used pajamas (0-3 months) and caps for premature infants admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit  at Covenant Health Care – Saginaw.  PJs for Preemies is a volunteer initiative suggestion from MACS student, Jennifer Reid.  Jennifer was introduced to this program in 2011, when she gave birth to her premature daughter.  Jennifer immediately thought of PJs for Preemies, when asked for her volunteer choice.

Christi Bauman, founder of PJs for Preemies, teamed up with Just for Kids Charitable Organization – Maier and Associates, as well as Graff Chevrolet to create this heartfelt and personal volunteer effort. Bauman shared that her son was born premature, 7 years ago, and she found that his pajamas were too large for his size.  She thought that having pajamas available in different sizes for new parents would be helpful and the MACS and SNA students agreed.  With the help of Midland and Saginaw Campuses, the volunteer drive brought in over 30 pajamas for donation. Bauman thanked Rebecca Ventura (Medical Assistant Program Director/Associate Department Chair for Allied Health Sciences) and Terri Cardon-Weiss (Advisor and Saginaw Interim Campus Director) when they delivered the donations to Graff Chevrolet on January 27.  Graff Chevrolet matched all donations.
