On Eden’s Wings Foundation Makes Donation to Good Samaritan Obstetrics

On Eden’s Wings Foundation Makes Donation to Good Samaritan Obstetrics

In June, On Eden’s Wings Foundation presented a donation to the Good Samaritan Obstetrics Department to help families who are encountering pregnancy issues, premature birth or infant mortality. In October of 2021, On Eden’s Wings received a $12,400 donation from the Knox County 100 Women Who Care, and the foundation organizers wanted to give some of that to Good Samaritan.

On Eden’s Wings Foundation President, Kim Hatton, said the foundation was created in 2014 after her granddaughter, Eden, was born stillborn at 39 weeks. After this devastating loss, Hatton said her family quickly noticed a need for support and assistance during this time. Through their experience, they recognized a need for families with pregnancy issues, premature birth, and infant mortality and wanted to help. On Eden’s Wings helps support local families and organizations in Knox, Lawrence, and Daviess counties, as well as throughout the Midwest.

The On Eden’s Wings donation to Good Samaritan will be used to purchase a camera, mold kits for hands and feet, memory books, jump drives, and magnetic keepsake boxes. “Pictures are of the utmost importance of any birth and especially for stillbirths. These families won’t get to experience the normal 3-month, 6-month, and so on pictures,” said Hatton.

The Foundation also provided ten emergency packets, each with a monetary donation of $100 that can be distributed as needed through the obstetrics department or physician offices. “There are times when patients in the ER or doctor’s office are transferred out of the county and don’t have money for gas to drive,” stated Hatton “This can help relieve some financial stress on families during this time.”

The obstetrics department’s director, Heidi Hinkle, RN, said Good Samaritan is very grateful for this donation. “Going through the loss of an infant is heartbreaking and difficult to put in words. However, the actions of On Eden’s Wings will support families and serve them during their time in need.”

Hatton said helping others through their experience helps her family. “Through this, we heal. It’s good for us,” she said. “Being able to be there for families and letting them know that they are not alone, and that they will be okay, it just takes time.”

On Eden’s Wings has an application on their website to apply for emergency assistance. Families eligible for assistance include, but are not limited to pregnancy concerns, prolonged hospital stays, or financial hardship due to premature births, as well as infant mortality. For more information visit
