Virtua Health NICU receives $1,000 donation from Classic Cake
Virtua Health's neonatal intensive care unit in Voorhees received a $1,000 donation from Classic Cake, which celebrated the opening of its new bakery in Short Hills Shopping Center along Evesham Road.
"We really appreciate the people at Classic Cake for recognizing the good work that happens in our NICU," said Mike Kotzen, Vice President and COO at Virtua West Jersey Hospital Voorhees. "With this donation, they are supporting the parents and newborns in the department."
In addition to the donation, through next September, families with babies born in the NICU will get a complimentary cake on the youngster's first birthday.
"A birth of a child is exciting and a happy time," said Jay Roseman, President of Classic Cake. "But for parents with newborns in a NICU, it can be scary too. We wanted to show our support for those parents."
