Children’s Hospital Foundation acknowledged area businesses and organizations for their support to raise money for sick and injured children who are treated at T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.
A small group of representatives from University of Tennessee Chattanooga fraternities and sororities recently visited Children’s Hospital to present a donation from proceeds raised during this school year’s Greek Show. The college students raised almost $12,000 to go towards medical care for sick and injured children in the region.
Area Publix stores participated in “Produce for Kids: Get Healthy, Give Hope” to help raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Locally, almost $600 was raised by associates and customers of Publix through this program. This is in addition to last year’s balloon campaign which raised over $5,000. Publix associates are looking forward to this year’s balloon campaign beginning May 22. All the money raised in the region stays in the region by supporting medical care and treatment to patients at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.
Children’s Hospital Foundation accepted $200 from local jewelry designer. Jonesy Wood. Jonesy Wood Design hosted a trunk sale with donated profits from the sale going to Children’s Hospital. Wood said she decided to do the fundraiser to benefit the hospital because her heart goes out to little ones who are sick and wanted to give back in any way possible. Seeing what families endure made it all too real when a close friend’s son became ill after birth and spent three weeks in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Children’s Hospital.
