Valentine's Day

A call for clothing

Valentine's DayFROM LUCILLE PACKARD CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

I recently received a request from a staff member of our Bereavement Services that one of the Intensive Care Unit social workers brought to her attention hoping we could help. The ICU social worker is aware that when a child dies at the hospital, often the parents, desiring to dress their child in nice clothing, will run across the street to the mall to try to purchase a new outfit in which to dress their child. Some clothing is kept on the unit for that purpose but the supply is evidently dwindling and the hope is for the clothing to be replenished.

Thank you for considering,
Diana
