Our Mission

Preemie Footprints was founded in memory of the Hayes twins, Caiden and Kaylie, who were born too early to survive. When Caiden and Kaylie were born, they received small hats and blankets from the hospital, which were small enough to fit their tiny bodies. These items and bereavement items also received from the hospital meant a lot to the family. The family decided to give back by forming a charity that would provide these and additional items to others.

The mission of Preemie Footprints is to provide comfort to families of all preemies and also to raise awareness about the issue of prematurity. This is accomplished through donations to hospitals of tangible items such as appropriate-sized hats, blankets, and quilts. Preemie Footprints raises awareness about the issue of prematurity through community events, most notably our annual softball event held in June.

Preemie Footprints, Inc. is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, formed in New York State.
