NICU babies at Ascension Columbia St. Mary's receive Christmas care packages

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Special deliveries were brought to the neo-natal intensive care unit (NICU) at a Milwaukee hospital on Wednesday, Dec. 18. 

A group of moms dropped off care packages for patients at Ascension Columbia St. Mary's. They call themselves the "Grateful Hearts Giving Network."

They collect supplies, put them together and bring them to the NICU to make sure the patients there know they haven't been forgotten. 

"In the bags like a baby board book, a nice reusable cup for them to have at their bedside, Kleenex hand sanitizer, a Christmas ornament for their babies and always included is a note of encouragement, just to know that somebody cares about them," said Grateful Hearts Giving Network President, Amy Scott. 

This is the eighth year the group has been handing out care packages. Last year, they donated more than 100 packages.
