Preemies of the Carolinas Inc

A nonprofit organization

$13,285 raised by 179 donors

Preemies of the Carolinas was started in September 2015 by Jennifer Opferman, a Pittsburgh, PA native by heart, for the past 16 years she’s been living in Charlotte, NC with a love for warmer weather and sunny skies.

After a personal hospitalization experience, Jennifer was looking to give back and provide children in the hospital with something special from home, something handmade to provide comfort to the patient.

Jennifer was inspired by The Preemie Project of Iowa and how they have comforted so many NICU families.

Preemies of the Carolinas made their first donation of Inspirational Hearts and Preemie Hats October 7th, 2015 to Novant Hemby Children’s Hospital.  Currently we provide Hearts, Hats and blankets to local NICU’s and send individual packets out to parents nationwide who currently have a preemie or baby in the NICU. We provide each NICU with Holiday items, our favorite is Halloween where we provide costumes. 

Since September 2015 we have grown and been accepted into 15 Hospitals and looking to expand across North and South Carolina.
