Second Drop Off A HUGE Success!

We had our second drop off with Mary, the amazing medical social worker that we were fortunate to work with when Peyton was at Connecticut Children's Medical Center, and WOW! your generosity over the last few months has been UNBELIEVABLE!

Nearly 700 items were tagged and boxed, so many items that we had to fold the back of our SUV down just to fit them all. 

Clothing, toys, diapers, bottles, homemade blankets, pacifiers, hats, mobiles... we asked and you came through in a big way! The list of items dropped off for use by the critically ill infants and their families at CCMC goes on and on. 

Mary met us on a Monday afternoon, and we went right to work,
transferring the donated items from our SUV to her car...

At one point we worried it might not all fit...

Then we worried that Mary might not fit after all these items were added... 

The weather was much nicer for this drop off than it had been for the first one
(it was FREEZING that day),
and we were able to spend some time catching up, 
and trying for a nice group shot...

Thank you so much to all those who made this second drop off possible. Your generosity, in both helping to honor Peyton's memory, and assisting these other little warriors and their families, has been awe inspiring.

We look forward to watching this initiative grow, and to sharing the news of more drop offs in the future.
