Cook Children's Celebrates Christmas in July
Santa! We know him! Cook Children's patients and families experienced a little Christmas cheer on Tuesday with our annual “Christmas in July” festivities in the Atrium of the Medical Center.
Patients picked out toys and created crafts, like Christmas cards and ornaments. They visited with St. Nick himself and Mrs. Claus.
At Cook Children's, we are grateful for the generosity of the community! Currently, we receive 70% of our annual in-kind donations in December. However, because of this, we have gaps in our needs that often need fulfilling throughout the year. Our gaps include needs for specific age groups or high-demand items that go quickly.
Our Child Life teams utilize in-kind donations every day, all day. From adding toys to playrooms, celebrating birthdays, offering comfort, providing distraction, and meeting basic needs, donations are the backbone of serving patients and families.
