Help Joaquin Miller Safety Patrol provide Comfort Kits for Children's Hospital
For our service project this year, JM's Safety Patrol is helping parents who stay overnight with their children in intensive care at Children's Hospital to have some comfort. In collaboration with the Family Resource Center at the Oakland Children's Hospital, we are asking for donations of items that Safety Patrol members can assemble into "Comfort Kits." The kits will be distributed to families who have children staying overnight at the hospital.
The area where family members stay (in a chair next to their child's hospital bed) is not very private, so items like ear plugs and eye masks are wonderful! Deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes help parents take care of themselves, while they also care for their children.
Here is the link for the Amazon wishlist (items ship directly to Joaquin Miller). Deadline to order items for this project is May 15th. You can also copy the link for the Amazon Wishlist and share it with your family and friends either via email or on your social media page.
Please do not hesitate to email the Safety Patrol Service Project Coordinator, Hilary Altman (Mom of Milana, 4th grade) ,with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
