Bank of America Employees Deliver Baskets to NICU

By Chris DeFrancesco

The Health Centerís Neonatal Intensive Care Unit accepted more than 100 gift baskets for parents of premature infants in its care.

Greater Hartford Bank of America employees organized an effort to collect, purchase or donate items such as preemie-sized clothing, diapers and other newborn supplies, then packaged them into hand-crafted gift baskets for the March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program. A team of bank employees delivered the baskets to the Health Center May 24 in what has become an annual event that includes a reception in the Onyiuke Dining Room and a tour of the NICU.
