2019 Annual Campaign


This year’s Annual Campaign will benefit the Child Life and Creative Arts program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to fund therapeutic play which helps children cope positively with the stress and uncertainty of illness, injury and treatment. These services are an integral part of the hospital’s family-centered, multidisciplinary care approach. Together, we can help heal children through art, compassion and play by supporting the following programs:

  • Creative Arts Therapy: Mental health professionals use art directives to support patients as they explore thoughts and feelings associated with illness.
  • Sophie’s Place Broadcast Studio: Patients can experience periods of isolation when they are not able to interact with others. This program allows patients to interact from their hospital room or in-studio with a program that is being broadcast.
  • Pet Assisted Therapy: Through this program, pets are brought to the hospital three times a month to visit patients and provide a calming experience which helps with coping and healing.

Despite the joy and healing powers of these programs, they are not reimbursed by insurance; instead, they are funded by the generosity of donors like you. Please join us in supporting this worthy cause by donating today.
