Some Special ‘Guardian Angels’ Deliver Joy to Kids at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital

Posted in Press Releases on March 21st, 2008

Cincinnati, OH – Cincinnati Children’s Hospital is excited to announce that the facility is a proud member of Kids Wish Network’s unique Holiday of Hope Gift Bank program. Kids Wish Network, a national charity dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children, is thrilled to be able to provide brand new toys and games with a retail value of over $60,000 to the hospital to be given to its young patients coming in for treatment.
The toys were delivered on March 19, 2008 and will be distributed to pediatric patients coming in throughout the year for medical care.
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital is just one of the countless hospitals across America participating in Kids Wish Network’s Holiday of Hope Gift Bank Program. Hospitals spanning from Kapi’olani Medical Center in Honolulu to Alaskan Native Medical Center in Anchorage to Children’s Hospital at Providence in Rhode Island are just a few of the facilities that are anxiously expecting the arrival of their Gift Banks!

 

As just one of the programs that makes Kids Wish Network different from similar organizations, its Holiday of Hope Gift Bank is an uplifting, gift-giving program that brings cheer to children admitted to the hospital for treatment. The brand new toys, donated by some of America’s top toy manufacturers, are distributed to sick youngsters when they come to children’s care facilities for treatment. These Gift Banks help alleviate fears and anxieties by allowing youngsters to temporarily forget about the stinging needles and painful treatments often endured while undergoing medical care.
