Deborah Fowler, Gillian Marie, and Bonnie Beam (L-R) of Colorado Landmark Realtors on 2nd Avenue in Niwot are collecting items to be donated to Love for Lily, a charity supporting families with children in neonatal intensive care units.

Deb Fowler understands how scary and difficult it can be with a newborn in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of a hospital. So when she learned about the organization Love for Lily, whose mission it is to help families with children in a NICU to thrive while in the hospital and when they go home, she was moved to support them.

"It's a charity we chose because myself and Bonnie [Beam], who's on the team, were both NICU moms and we would have loved something like this." Fowler's son Oliver was born 10 weeks early weighing one and a half pounds.

Some suggested items for donation are colored pencils, childrens' books, gift cards of any denomination to Target, Starbucks, Amazon, chocolate, novels and poetry books for parents, hand lotions, baby care essentials such as wipes, diapers, and onesies.

Love for Lily assists parents by helping families navigate NICU challenges, providing comforting and essential items, and offering supportive resources including grants and group meeting. Over the holiday season, Love for Lily provides gift packages to hundreds of families in NICUs.

Drop offs are being accepted at Deborah Fowler's Colorado Landmark office inside the Niwot Emporium building located at 136 2nd Ave C, Niwot, CO 80503. Office hours are Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., but there will be a collection box outside where items may be left outside of office hours.
