Children's Heart Society provides comfort bags full of information for parents and special items for a child heading into heart surgery or in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. We bring fun into the hospital for children having to stay over major holidays by bringing in special holiday bags filled with goodies and treats to brighten young patients. We also bring big bright red heart balloons into the hospital for the cardiac kids.
We provide support to families in need as well as donations to the Child Life Program for the Cardiac ward in the forms of gift cards, coffee pods for the parents pantry, equipment and toys for use by children and families staying in the hospital.
On the second Wednesday of every month, you can find our dedicated Volunteers outside of Unit 4C hosting Coffee Time. Coffee time gives parents the opportunity to take a few moments for themselves, connect with other families and enjoy a cup of coffee and goodies on us!
