Put material things aside for awhile, give back to those less fortunate. Here are a few ways that you can give back: Volunteer with the Salvation Army, ringing the bell, work at the homeless shelter serving food, help with collecting toys and delivering them for Toys for Tots and if you have a heart for babies, Give back to families in the hospital during Christmas, donate time to The Gift of Life putting care packages together for those parents that have their premature babies in the neonatal intensive care unit.

The Mayor’s Proclamation:
Whereas, premature births have been increasingly steady, progressively and alarmingly over the past two decades; and
Whereas, many premature babies are born too small and face the risk of getting sick easily; and
Whereas, even though doctors have made excellent advances in caring for babies born too small and too soon, there is a long way to go in order to prevent preterm birth from happening in the first place; and
Whereas, 27Miracles is an organization that is presenting the Gift of Life, a fundraiser event inspired by Rosie Moore’s own story, who had a premature baby that was born 13 weeks early; and
Whereas, the event seeks to raise funds for equipment supporting Florida Hospital for Children’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit; and
Whereas, the special night celebrates the daily miracles of premature newborns and encourages our community to provide support to those families that are having premature babies; and
Whereas, organizations such as 27 Miracles work closely with volunteers and partners to raise public awareness of the problems of prematurity and to decrease the rate of preterm birth in our region:
