NEW YORK, April 2013—Delta Children and Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.) makes another stop on their nationwide "Safe Sleep" tour to offer free cribs to families in need and spread the message of "Safe Sleep." On Friday, April 12th from 11:30am-1:30pm Delta Children will donate 200 cribs (valued at $60,000) to families in need through the Pennsylvania United Medical Association (PUMA) in Warrington, PA.
Joseph Shamie, President of Delta Children, has made it his mission to give the gift of safe sleep. "Delta Children was founded by my father, Louis Shamie.

"We at K.I.D.S. are very excited to partner with Delta Children to establish a Safe Sleep Center at the Pennsylvania United Medical Association," said K.I.D.S. President Chris Blake. "Our national Safe Sleep campaign combines new product donations with education and advocacy to reduce the incidence of SIDS in the United States and we're happy to provide this important service to parents in Philadelphia."
The donations will go to families in need of safe cribs in the Philadelphia area through the Pennsylvania United Medical Association (PUMA). Executive Director, Steve Simpson shared his sentiments noting, "We look forward to the upcoming event with great anticipation. Our mission is to share hope with communities and see them rise above their poverty level. This event is another step toward brighter futures."
