Holiday newborns go home in Christmas stockings

GTU Sponsor

Santa is making a lot of extra special deliveries in Riverton Hospital this year. Each baby born during December at Riverton Hospital will be wrapped up in a giant Christmas stocking, instead of the usual blanket. 

The stockings have been a tradition the past few years at Riverton Hospital. Up until last year, Labor and Delivery staff have volunteered to sew the custom-sized stockings. However, this year Boy Scout Jackson Bond contacted them and volunteered to sew the stockings for his Eagle Scout project. 

Jackson joined us on the show today to talk about his experience making the stockings. He said he made 135 stockings this year. He was helped by his mom and women in his neighborhood. He said he learned how to sew specifically for this project. 

Holly from Intermountain Hospital also joined us on the show. She said the stockings are special because it is something the families will always remember.
