Here are just a few examples of how your gift can help the kids we treat at Nationwide Children's Hospital.
Gift cards help our families with small incidental expenses during their often unexpected hospital stay.
Our tiniest patients use more than 31,000 diapers a year. $25 will buy five packs.
Through our Reach Out & Read Program, children receive age-appropriate books during their well-child visits. A gift of just $50 will buy books for this program and help children prepare to enter school.
Wagons are available at all of the entrances of Nationwide Children's. They are used, free of charge, by families to transport their children and/or items while visiting the hospital. The best days are spent watching the wagons being wheeled to the doors with a patient on board, smiling because they are heading home.
Nationwide Children's Hospital admits more than 150 new patients with cancer every year. We are treating more than 1,000 children throughout our region who are in various stages of their fight against this devastating disease. The day every cancer patient and their family look forward to is celebrating the last chemotherapy treatment.
Every child admitted to the hospital receives a gift of their choice upon admission. Help us fund gifts to bring comfort to our patients during their stay.
Our patients attend camp in a medically-safe environment so they can do what they do best – be kids!
Every child who has surgery at Nationwide Children's picks out a toy that awaits them when they wake up from their procedure. It helps take away a little of the anxiousness. Fund the toy supply for one month and bring smiles to more than 1,000 children.
In no way is this list comprehensive of all of the patient care needs at Nationwide Children's. Every gift impacts the health of all kids in our community. Please give now to support our areas of greatest need.
