At NISSA, we help teach you how to protect your infant during sleep. We provide comfort and support to families affected by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) & other unexpected deaths of an infant. We also educate the public and professionals on how to reduce the risk of sudden infant death.

Our work is so important - especially to our African American and Native American families because they are affected in far greater numbers. Please spread the word that infants should always sleep on their backs.

Fred Meyer is donating $2.5 million per year to non-profits in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, based on where their customers tell them to give. Here’s how the program works:
Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to Northwest Infant Survival & SIDS Alliance at Fred Meyer Community Rewards. You can search for us by our name or by our non-profit number 83552.
Then, every time you shop and use your Rewards Card, you are helping us earn a donation!
You still earn your Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates, just as you do today.
If you do not have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.

We are gearing up for our annual auction this October. If you know any businesses or organizations willing to support our cause please let the office know.

On Mother's Day and throughout the year, we offer comfort to those who have lost a child and we honor and remember your babies.
