Infant mortality from sleep-related death is on the rise in South Dakota. In response to this community need, Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center is taking action.
But we need your help! To further our mission, we are providing safe sleep packages as part of the Cribs for Kids® initiative. Each package costs $75.
Please join us in supporting this vital initiative by making a gift to purchase a safe sleep package
“My husband and I weren’t prepared to have a baby. The thought of bringing a new life into our world was scary. We didn’t have any supplies or the necessary equipment; not even a crib or a car seat.
That’s when the caregivers at Avera told us about this program that provides safe sleeping packages. We felt a lot better knowing our newborn was safe. Thank you to everyone at Avera and to those who support programs that help families like us.” --Anonymous
