Premature birth is the #1 cause of newborn death and the biggest threat to babies' health today. Through March for Babies, the March of Dimes is funding important research to find out why premature birth happens and what can be done to prevent it. There is nothing more important than to give every baby a healthy start in life. During the months of August through October, we will host several fundraising events to help in the fight for babies.
Available at all SPC Branch Locations:
BABY FEET: $1 paper cutouts with your name included to be displayed at the Credit Union branch.
BUTTERFLIES: $10 each. The butterflies will be decorated and displayed in a "butterfly garden" at the March for Babies on November 13th. They come in the following colors:
Honor a healthy baby with a PINK or BLUE butterfly. Honor a baby born prematurely with a PURPLE butterfly, or a baby born with a birth defect with a YELLOWbutterfly. You can also remember those special babies that are no longer with us with a WHITE butterfly.
