Furniture retailer presents NICU with check donation on behalf of March for Babies top fundraising team

Bob’s Discount Furniture is teaming up with March of Dimes to donate to the NICU Family Support Program at the Connecticut Children’s NICU at the University of Connecticut Health Center on June 27, 2016. The furniture retailer will be presenting a check to the hospital on behalf of the March for Babies top fundraising team, the Kahn family. The family participated in the annual walk, to continue their healing process and honor the recent loss of their son, Noah. Born at just 23 weeks, Noah weighed 1 pound and 4 ounces, allowing Laura and Adam Kahn to spend just 13 short hours with their son. Along with the donation to the NICU, the Kahn family will be receiving a gift card to Bob’s Discount Furniture. The other top 19 fundraising teams from the March for Babies will also be receiving gift cards to the furniture store.

The annual March for Babies walk raises money for March of Dimes to support research and programs to find the causes of premature births and ways to prevent it. Bob’s Discount Furniture has sponsored the annual walk for 20 years.
