Care kits are a great way for groups of all sizes and ages to get involved and support families.
Groups can participate from anywhere as long as one participant is able to deliver the kits to a House or Family Room.
The families we serve are often on the go between doctor appointments, hospital visits, and travel to and from the Houses. Care kits provide families with the essentials so they can stay by their child’s side.
You can prepare as many kits as you’d like at your school, office, hotel, community center, conference center, etc. – wherever works best for you and your group!
Share your positive messages or cards in the packs! Be creative, but please ensure messages are not religious and are appropriate for any family member, for example “Have an awesome day!” or “You’re doing great!”
When parents or caregivers have to travel far from home to stay near their hospitalized child, simple things like toothbrushes, shampoo, or hand lotion are often forgotten. But these items make a huge difference in helping parents feel refreshed and ready to face the day.
Each toiletry kit should include one each of the following travel-sized items, and can be collected in a gallon zip lock bag:
- Toothbrush (individually packaged and sealed)
- Body wash or bar soap
- Body lotion
- DO NOT include any razors, food, or other perishable items.
Delivering Care Kits
Care kits can be dropped off at any House seven days a week between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
If you are planning to assemble care kits, we encourage you to reach out to our volunteer team in advance so they can help answer any questions and coordinate delivery to our Houses. Please contact:
