A medical facility that helps babies is getting a financial boost thanks to a Lee County family.

The Phoebe Putney NICU services received a $2,500 donation  Wednesday from Eric and Stephanie Gause.  They entered to win the money through the America's Farmers Grow Communities.

They chose Phoebe's neo-natal intensive care unit to get the money.  It will help produce an informational video for parents.

"A lot of times they'll ask the questions and you answer, but they don't necessarily remember the answer. So they can watch the video as many times as they want and then it will spur additional questions that then can be answered by the staff," said Georgiana Miksis, the NICU clinical director.

The program works directly with farmers to support nonprofit organizations.  It is sponsored by the Monsanto Fund and was launched in 2011.
