|When we dropped off our quilt donation on February 21, 2009, we had asked if there
was any requests our fund could fulfill for the oncology unit. The child life specialist
said they needed a new play kitchen, play food and playdoh for the play room.
On March 20, 2009 we fulfilled their request and donated a new play kitchen, a lot of
play food, aprons and chef hats, playdoh and a wooded table top workbench which
reminded us of Zach.
Below is a picture of a patient enjoying the new kitchen in the playroom.
|When we dropped off our quilt donation in October, 2008, the childlife
specialist commented that the oncology floor could really use a cart like the
one we use for our fund.
In February 2009, we donated an aluminum three tier utility cart for the
oncology unit. We know the parents/patients will really get a lot of use out
of the cart when they are loading/unloading their rooms after a hospital stay.
We are happy to provide something that will make their lives a little easier!
|In July 2010, a basketball fundraiser was held to benefit
our nonprofit organization. The Moneyball was held in
Bonner's gymnasium and organized by Rudee (for her
Upper Darby High School Senior Project) with the help of
her sister, Karla (a graduate of Villanova University).
Everyone who participated that day had a lot of fun and
they were able to raise $200.00 for our fund. Thank you to
those who organized the event and those who volunteered
their time to help with the event!
