ProgenyHealth held a day of service on January 16th to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Throughout the day, staff participated in an onsite community service project benefiting Cradles to Crayons, located in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. Collectively, we assembled 200 newborn health kits filled with everyday essentials for babies aged 0-3. We donated the baby kits to Cradles to Crayons for their Gear Up for Baby Program. For children who lack basic necessities, healthy development is challenging. Cradles to Crayons started the Gear Up for Baby Program which focuses on providing babies and toddlers with the essential items they need to thrive.
ProgenyHealth’s Community Outreach Committee planned this day of service as a team building project for the entire staff. Jennifer McGlone, the Chair of the Committee had this to say about the event, “In working with NICU babies, we at ProgenyHealth understand how important it is for babies and families to have access to everyday essentials such as diaper cream, baby wipes, and baby shampoo. We are proud to partner with Cradles to Crayons in their Gear Up for Baby Program. The Committee is already thinking of ways to enhance our service projects to meet the huge demand that Cradles to Crayons receives throughout the year.”
