Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match Team Donates to Nathan Littauer Birthing Center

GLOVERSVILLE, NY – Nathan Littauer Hospital is pleased to announce a generous grant of $3,000.00 from Stewart’s Shops and the Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match Team. This grant was used to purchase a CuddleCot™ for the hospital’s Birthing Center, enhancing the quality of care provided to families experiencing infant loss. According The CuddleCot website, A CuddleCot™ is a specialized cooling device which allows families more time to grieve and bond with their baby after their demise.

The CuddleCot™ is a compassionate way to provide grieving time for families experiencing loss, and preserves their baby’s appearance, condition, and their dignity. The device offers families the time to create precious memories, keep their loved ones close, enable family and friends to meet their baby, and the time to make necessary arrangements.

“We are incredibly grateful to Stewart’s Shops and the Holiday Match Team for their generous gift,” said Nathan Littauer Hospital and Nursing Home Vice President of Business Development Geoffrey Peck. “This contribution will make a meaningful difference in the lives of families during a difficult time, and we are honored to have the support of a community-minded organization such as Stewarts.”

The Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match program, a longstanding tradition, involves collecting and matching donations made by customers. Half of the donations come from Stewart’s Shops customers, and Stewart’s doubles every donation, allowing for a significant impact on local communities.

Stewart’s Shops Store 180 Manager, Oshanda Pollard presented Nathan Littauer with a check of $3,000.00 on April 24, 2024. “The Holiday Match program is phenomenal,” said Oshanda. “I hope and pray that people always have just a little to give to such a great cause, because it’s giving back to our community in such a big way. I’ve had all of my six children with Nathan Littauer. With the donation from Stewarts’ Shops to purchase the CuddleCot™, Nathan Littauer can provide a gentle way for grieving parents to mourn the loss of their child.”

“We are thankful to Stewart’s Shops and the Holiday Match Team for their thoughtful and generous grant,” said Maureen Mosher, Manager of the Birthing Center at Nathan Littauer Hospital. “This contribution will have a profound impact on the families we serve, providing some comfort and support.”
