Gift Gathering Campaign

Gift Gathering Campaign

A Gift Gathering Campaign is a way to provide pediatric patients and their families with critical support when they are faced with an unexpected emergency.

Imagine…

  • being a first-time mother rushed to the hospital for an unexpected premature delivery and not having time to pack diapers for your new baby.
  • being a pediatric patient undergoing treatment at the hospital for an unexpected diagnosis and not having a toy, book, or craft kit to help take your mind off of your condition.
  • being a parent of a sick child who has to be transferred to a hospital in Colorado for an unexpected surgery and you don’t have overnight bathroom essentials like a toothbrush or shampoo.

Support pediatric patients and their families in the Rocky Mountain region by hosting a Gift Gathering at your office, home, school, or in your neighborhood. It’s as simple as collecting diapers, books, clothing, toys, games, and art supplies.
