September 2020 – preemieFAMILY Support

Organization: Jacob’s Closet
Founder: Ashley Thilges
Outreach: Iowa and Missouri NICUs

Ashley Thilges, Founder of Jacob’s Closet states, “My son was born at 24 weeks, 3 days due to Preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome. He was 1 lb, 5 oz and had 7 surgeries during his 209 days in the NICU. While we were in the NICU, we learned that hospitals rely solely on donations for clothing for the babies and are in short supply.”

Jacob’s Closet was created to give back and help make other families NICU experiences a little better. We collect clothing and financial donations for babies in the NICU.

We have a Facebook page and Instagram page. We also have a PayPal account. If anyone
would like to donate, they can contact us and we can arrange pickup/drop off of items.
