Wondering how you can support kids at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford? Setting aside some time to assemble kits is a wonderful way to bring folks together to support our patients and their families.
What’s an activity kit?
Activity kits are little bundles of comfort filled with simple, creative items that a kid or teen can use to have fun. They help keep patients and siblings occupied and entertained when they may be feeling anxious or scared.
What’s a care kit?
Care kits are filled with amenities parents need to take care of themselves while their child is in the hospital. Families often come to the hospital on short notice and don’t have the time to pack the items they need for a stay away from home.
How it works:
2. Purchase your supplies. Each activity kit can cost as little as $2, while care kits tend to run between $5-10.
3. Gather your group together for some team bonding and kit building! One person can usually make 15-20 kits an hour. If you’d like, you can personalize your kits with drawings or your group’s logo.
4. Bring your kits to the hospital, and know you are making a positive impact for our patients and families.
