Project Sweet Peas Celebrates Five Years

| |
0 comments
Did you know that we are celebrating our fifth birthday this month? In five years Project Sweet Peas has grown from the dreams of three mothers to a nationwide effort to provide support to families experiencing life in the NICU and to those experiencing loss. Together we have provided over 10,000 care packages and hosted countless events that promoted awareness and/or provided for the needs of the families that we serve. We have established an invaluable community of volunteers committed to our cause and we are inspiring others to walk alongside us by offering their helping hands.
 
Together we impact thousands of families each year.
 
Our organization would not be what it is today without the heart and dedication of our co-founders, our volunteers and the support we receive from the communities we serve. To celebrate and to say "thank you" we are giving away two official PSP bangles to two supporters. To enter please visit our Facebook page and comment below our photo.
