HOW WE WORK WITH HOSPITALS
HOSPITALS WE WORK WITH
OUR HOSPITAL PROGRAMS
EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT GIFT BAGS
This program consists of a gift bag that is distributed to every kid who enters the emergency department at a hospital we work with every day of the year. Since 2006 the Little Saint Nick Foundation (LSNF) has provided over 85,000 gift bags to kids in hospitals across the country. We have 15-20 kid volunteers from local communities near hospitals we work with pack the gift bags each month. Each gift bag contains a coloring book, crayons, stuffed animal, LSNF brochure and a get well card handmade by kids, for kids. It is very important to us to teach kids the value and importance of service to others, and we are doing that as they are packing the bags and making get well cards. The gift bags are then dropped off by our volunteers at the beginning of each month. They take a picture in the hospital dressed up for the theme of that month for social media. The emergency department nurses, volunteers, or other staff deemed appropriate by the hospital administration, will make every effort to ensure that every kid patient under age 18 who enters the emergency department receives a gift bag. This can also be done by LSNF volunteers so that our volunteers can connect with the patients and tell them about our organization. These gift bags can also be distributed to not just the emergency department kid patients, but to every kid who enters a hospital depending on supply.
HOSPITAL VISITS FROM LITTLE SAINT NICK
The Little Saint Nick Foundation (LSNF) works closely with hospitals to coordinate a visit from our founder, a celebrity and/or a group of volunteers. We understand the sensitivity of many of these sick, injured and impaired children, and we are very careful to treat every situation with the utmost respect.
The goal of these visits are to brighten the days of the kids in need, often times with toys and sometimes with a special visit from a celebrity or sports star. The situation that many of these kids are facing every day would be difficult for even the strongest adults to handle. We have seen time and time again how a simple gift or gesture can really make their lives so much better for that one moment. Putting a smile on the faces of others in need means everything to us.
HOST A HOSPITAL PARTY
We will come into your hospital or care facility and put together an event for kids in need of a smile. Those kids who can attend will be greeted with a host of toys and volunteers to help them along. Other activities include: dance parties, face painting, games, celebrity appearances, and more. Watch this video to get an idea of what these events look like.
MOBILE ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEMS
MOBILE ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEMS
We supply mobile entertainment systems to Pediatric units and Emergency Departments. Each system contains a rolling cart with a TV and video game system. This mobile system gets wheeled to any kid that would like to take their mind off the scary setting of a hospital.
LAPTOP COMPUTER PROGRAM
We donate laptop computers for kids that are bed ridden in long-term hospital units. This will enable each kid to do homework, communicate with family and friends, play games, and more.
