2021 Holiday Benevolence

By Pam Foster, DMin, BCC

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Last year at this time we anticipated the world would be open and we would be about our usual business. That has not been the case, but we have all persevered! I am so thankful for you. And, I’m glad that we get to kick off another season of Holiday Benevolence. Thank you for joining me in making the holidays brighter for many of the children and families we serve.

Below you will find links to the following:

Please Note: If your department or clinic prefers to sponsor a family for the holidays, you need to let us know by Friday, Nov. 19. We will do our best to find a match for you quickly, so you can take advantage of those great after-Thanksgiving sales. Please tell us how large a family you want to sponsor and any other restrictions/preferences--a clinic in a particular city might prefer to sponsor an outpatient family in their community, etc.

To sponsor a family, please email pam.foster@cookchildrens.org and include the name of the point-person for your group. (No individual sponsors, please.)

COVID guidelines: The gifts must be delivered in a safe, socially distanced manner. Please choose a central location to meet the family, and wear your mask at all times. We will not be entering anyone’s home.

Each year your response to the needs of children and families makes my heart smile!
