HOW WE HELP CHILDREN IN HOSPITALS

Volunteers work year round to help children cope with their pain and fear. OUR PROGRAMSGETTING INVOLVED

HOSPITAL VISITS FROM LITTLE SAINT NICK

The Little Saint Nick Foundation will work closely with a children’s hospital to coordinate a visit from our founder, a celebrity or another 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 care and respect.

The goal of the visits are to brighten the days of the kids in need, often times with presents, toys, gifts and sometimes with a very special visit from a celebrity or sports star. The situation that many of these children are facing every day would be difficult for even the strongest adult to handle. We have seen time and time again how a simple gift or gesture or smile on their face can really make their lives so much better for that one moment, and that means everything.

Emergency Room Gift Bags

We provide emergency room gift bags for every child that comes through the emergency room. The gift bags contain a coloring book, a beanie baby and a couple of other odds and ends. Emergency rooms can be a very scary place for kids, and these little bags provide a little sliver of joy and play to the experience. To date: Little Saint Nick Foundation has provided thousands of these gift bags to children across the country.
