NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- It took a few days for staff and volunteers to complete, but the final tally is in from the Sept. 25th Titans game-day donation drive at LP Field. Fans donated a total of 3,972 infant care items to Nurses for Newborns of Tennessee, a local non-profit agency that provides in-home nurse visitation and support to families with medically fragile born infants.
This was a 562% increase from the year before when Nurses for Newborns was the Titans' game-day drive partner for their pre-season game against the New Orleans Saints.
Nurses for Newborns had forty volunteers to assist on Sunday, including employees from
Caterpillar Financial, HCA, two service-learner students from Martin Luther King Jr. Magnet
High School, and a father-son team from a local Boy Scout troop.
American Paper and Twine provided key transportation and support in moving fan donations.
Waste Management also donated the "Bagsters" used at LP Field's seven donation collection
About Nurses for Newborns:
Nurses for Newborns of Tennessee (NFNT) is a prevention-based home visitation service that
helps at-risk families caring for infants and young children, many of whom were born medically
fragile. Agency nurses provide well-baby assessments, parenting education, and supporting
physical, mental health, safety assessments for caregivers. Nurses also examine the family's
home living environment to check for potential safety hazards that might result in harm or injury, teach caregivers how to perform infant CPR, and ensure they are following-up on all required infant health services (i.e. immunizations, pediatric check-ups).
