Corporate Volunteers at Children’s

April 20th, 2012

Corporate volunteers at Children’s help with everything from providing meals for patients and families to staffing the many events that we have throughout the year. Oh, and they sure know how to throw a great party!

Already in 2012, UnitedHealth Group has hosted a winter carnival, RJF Agencies has provided & served a pizza lunch to patients and families, Famous Dave’s has provided multiple meals on both campuses, and Walgreen’s has continued to provide an ice cream social for patients, families and staff on both campuses each month! In addition, corporate teams from Target, Optum and others have volunteered a portion of their team meeting time to put together and donate craft kits and comfort items – this is a great way for large groups to volunteer their time at their own offices.

Children’s greatly appreciates the time and talents of these wonderful volunteers and the comfort, care and ease that their generosity provides for the families that we serve.
