The birth of a baby is a time of great joy and celebration. The Lenoir Memorial Foundation is pleased to offer a very special way for parents, grandparents and friends to commemorate this wonderful event. The Cradle Crowd is a unique tribute that, unlike flowers or clothing, will last a lifetime.
With a minimum gift of $125, you will receive two beautiful satin-silver medallions etched with the actual footprint, name and date of birth of your special baby. One medallion can be placed on the Cradle Crowd wall located in the Family Birth Center reception area. You can select the spot and take pictures of the baby and family members present as the medallion is being attached. The duplicate medallion comes with a Lucite easel for a free-standing display; it can be given to the parents, grandparents or other interested party.
Proceeds from the Cradle Crowd are used to sustain and enhance newborn services and equipment at Lenoir Memorial Hospital. Literally, a gift of life, your commemoration results in top quality care for a tiny newborn, life-saving technology and skilled staffing for the Family Birth Center. This gift helps to fund educational programs for new “moms” including classes on newborn care, breast feeding and infant immunization. A brochure with information about the Cradle Crowd including the enrollment form can be obtained at the nurses’ station within the Family Birth Center. Additional information is available by contacting the Foundation office at 252-522-7262.
Checks should be made payable to the Lenoir Memorial Foundation and mailed to 100 Airport Road, Kinston, NC 28501.
