Breanna’s Gift volunteers have provided opportunities for children and their families to participate in dance, arts, theater and music activities at both the Minneapolis and St. Paul Children’s Hospital campuses since 2009.

We are so fortunate to have Marsha Ovitz and fellow Breanna’s Gift volunteers here at Children’s Hospital! The impact that dance, arts and music have on the lives of our patients and families at Children’s is incredible. We so appreciate the time and talents you share with us here! Thank you!
