Hope all continues to be well. I have an updated count on car seats for the week. As of 11/29/2018 at 11:15 am, we have 0 - Comfy Carry (under 5 lbs), 2 - Cosco Scenera convertible seats (up to 40 lbs.), and 1 - Harmony backless booster (40-100 lbs.) in stock. The last Comfy Carry seat was distributed today.
As always, thanks for everything that all have done and continue to do for us here at UVA and the patients/families we serve. We are forever grateful and appreciative for IHS, Sam, the late Rev. Elisheva' Clegg and of course you, Rev. Thomas Wade Clegg.
Thank you ... Lashanna"
P lease note that IHS received a Federal Express delivery this week within 3 days which consisted of 10 - Comfy Carry car seats. IHS has 3 - Cosco Scenera seats in stock and 2 - Harmony boosters in stock. IHS will purchase more seats as needed during Dece mb er. The Cosco Scenera and Harmony booster items are obtained with ease from a reliable retail Walmart store in Louisa County, Virginia.
For Friends of IHS who may not know of this service for indigent or underfunded parents of infants at UVA Medical Center, IHS has provided a new infant car seat through the UVA Social Work Office for the last eight years when a parent is leaving the hospital and not able to afford purchase of an infant car seat. An infant car seat is a mandatory item for departure of all infants from the Medical Center.
And, as always, please remember that all of us at IHS are non-paid volunteers, and we are all donating what we can to IHS personally. Also remember - for transparency we hold the "Gold Seal of Approval" from the Guidestar.org national clearing house. Please do what you can.
