No final numbers yet, but money you’ve raised is already at work helping babies and families:
• We’ve increased our support to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.
• We’re reaching out to more moms through programs of education and intervention.
• We are funding new research into treatments and preventions for problems like premature birth and birth defects.
More grants and more programs mean more healthy babies. And you’ve helped make that happen!
On behalf of all of America’s families: THANK YOU!

CitiFinancial and March of Dimes are working together for stronger, healthier babies!
Gift boxes filled with baby supplies, clothing, diaper bags, books, toys and much more were provided by Kmart and other generous donors for the deserving moms whose spouses are currently serving their country. Kmart execs surprised moms by giving them each a brand new car seat to take home in addition to the other wonderful gifts.
Tabitha Furyk, wife of PGA TOUR star Jim Furyk, attended the event bringing the moms even more gifts. Also in attendance was PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem and his wife Holly. Commissioner Finchem recognized the sacrifices that these moms-to-be make and the important role that they play.
The March of Dimes was honored to partner with our great friends at The PGA TOUR and Operation Shower to be a part of this very special day.
