Holden NICU Tile Fundraiser Kick-off!

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

The FCC is announcing the kick-off of our Holden NICU Tile Fundraiser!

We’ve pledged $1,000 to the effort to include handmade Pewabic tiles in the Welcome Desk designs on each floor.

We’ve chosen t-shirts: short sleeve, long sleeve and v-neck; sweatshirts: crew and zip with hood; a denim shirt and a tote bag. Samples are being displayed in the Holden conference room along with color swatches and order forms. These will have a tile design inspired by the Pewabic tiles and can be ordered in many different colors and sizes.

The Order form with payment can be placed in the envelope in the Room 2 locked drawer. Orders will be sent on a regular basis to Ray Lund who is providing the embroidery. We will also be selling toddler t-shirts which will be ordered and embroidered in bulk.

They will be yellow, size 2T and will be available for purchase at any time by staff and families. Families may purchase any of the items available.
