Each year, we support a specific need at the hospital. This year's campaign benefits the Child Life and Creative Arts program.
This year’s Annual Campaign will benefit the Child Life and Creative Arts program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to fund therapeutic play which helps children cope positively with the stress and uncertainty of illness, injury and treatment. These services are an integral part of the hospital’s family-centered, multidisciplinary care approach. Together, we can help heal children through art, compassion and play by supporting the following programs:
Creative Arts Therapy: Mental health professionals use art directives to support patients as they explore thoughts and feelings associated with illness.
Sophie’s Place Broadcast Studio: Patients can experience periods of isolation when they are not able to interact with others. This program allows patients to interact from their hospital room or in-studio with a program that is being broadcast.
Pet Assisted Therapy: Through this program, pets are brought to the hospital three times a month to visit patients and provide a calming experience which helps with coping and healing.

Despite the joy and healing powers of these programs, they are not reimbursed by insurance; instead, they are funded by the generosity of donors like you. Please join us in supporting this worthy cause by donating today.
