We are so grateful to COBS Bread for their ongoing support. Every year the folks at Cobs run Dough-nation Day, where part proceeds from every pack of hot cross buns sold are donated to NRGH. Not only that, but customers can donate their points to the NRGH account at Cobs at any time! This year they knocked it out of the park by raising a whopping $3,415 during the month of March! The funds will support the purchase of critical care equipment in the new Intensive Care Unit, set to open next year. Thank you so much, Cobs!
