Students create baby & new mom gift bags

MIDDLEBURY — New moms at Porter Hospital’s birthing center recently received gifts from two crafty and community-minded Bridge School students.
The students are India Danyow, 11, and Allegra de Boer, 10, both of whom are in Amanda Warren’s class. The two girls and their five classmates worked on independent projects throughout the academic year. Danyow and de Boer decided to make gift bags for new moms at Porter Hospital. Each of the 24 bags contains a homemade tie-dye onesie, a burp cloth (each sewn and donated by another teacher), and earrings.
Danyow and de Boer made the earrings in school, and they tie-dyed the onesies at school as well.
The 24 bags should be enough to cover one month of new babies delivered at Porter, according to Warren.
The two children raised $64 at a bake sale to help pay for supplies. They brought in some of the materials from home, and some were available at school, according to Warren.
A group of Porter nurses and providers gratefully received the gifts from the girls late last month.
“We are deeply grateful to the students of the Bridge School for their kind and generous support of our community hospital and the patients we serve,” said Porter spokesperson Ron Hallman. “We are so fortunate to live in a place where our entire community, including the youngest members, care about our important work we do every day to care for patients.”
