At Hennepin Healthcare we are taking care of more children than ever with the surge of severe flu, respiratory illnesses, and trauma afflicting our youngest population.
We welcome them with warmth, compassion, and the very best providers. Yet, they still enter a strange environment with odd sounds, smells, and unfamiliar people. Days stretch on forever without your favorite games and toys. It gets boring.
This season, you can brighten the days of our youngest patients with your gift of new and unwrapped toys.
Our Child Life program is hosting a toy drive to bring joy to our youngest patients who are spending the holidays in the hospital. This annual drive also serves to build a supply that is used throughout the year to help bring comfort to the extraordinary kids in our care.
We’ve never been busier and are asking you to share our wish list with colleagues, friends, and family so each child can have a bit of the familiar in an unfamiliar place.
