Handmade In-Kind Donations

Crafters make a difference in the lives of our patients too! Donations of hats help keep tiny patients cozy warm in the NICU, cover the heads of patients receiving chemotherapy and keep bandaged or casted hands warm in the Minnesota winter. Hand sewn surgery dolls are used in Pediatrics so that staff can show their young patients the area that will be affected and how that will affect their recovery and treatment. The following items are things you can make to help patients at Hennepin Healthcare. Use your favorite pattern(s) or use the ones provided below.
