Angel Gown FAQ

Exciting news! Thanks to our amazing donors we are officially outgrowing our warehouse space. We have mailed over 3,000 gowns and have an additional 5,000 that we are currently processing for our more than 900 seamstresses working tirelessly across the country. In order to provide even more support for families in their own backyards we are opening chapters in the coming months. We need time and space to process the gowns currently in our warehouse and provide each donor with a tax letter. In order to achieve this we will be stopping gown donations for a period of time. Gowns received by October 18, 2014 will receive a tax letter for the 2014 tax year.

Here’s how you can still help:

– NICU Helping Hands currently services 164 hospitals across the nation providing Angel Gown garments for 20 families in each initial hospital shipment. $80 will cover the packaging and shipping expenses for our garments  to be sent directly to a hospital. Consider making a donation in honor or in memory of a loved one to help uscare for these families. Donate

– If you haven’t yet sent us your wedding gown, you may simply wait until we reopen our donations in 2015. We will update our website and social media when we’re once again ready to receive wedding gowns.

But most of all, thank you for helping us provide support to families experiencing infant loss. We feel honored to do this work along with our team of volunteers, seamstresses and donors from across the country.
