The KDS team is always looking for new ways to give back to our community and in the Spring of 2021, we did just that! Our company teamed up with the local hospital, UPMC Hanover, to figure out what they may need or a way to give back and it brought us to our Spring Baby Item Drive!
After talking with the hospital, we found that new mothers being discharged from the hospital would be a great focus for us. Our company is very family-oriented, so this concept really bloomed with that in mind!
Bringing home a newborn may be overwhelming for some, especially if you are concerned about how you will be able to provide for them while you aren’t able to work. We came up with the idea to put together care packages full of goodies that could be distributed to new mothers in need! We had a goal to put 100 boxes together. While our campaign ran from March until June, we were able to reach 60 total. These packages included diapers, wipes, baby wash, onesies, a bath towel, wash cloths, handmade burp cloths, bibs, a blanket, and a book.
Trust me, it was so great to be able to provide to the hospital and we know the recipients were more than grateful as well.
We were thrilled to try something new this year and find a different way to give back to our community! Stay tuned as we are always up to something throughout the area! While we are always busy on a job site, we are also focused on giving back as well!
