St. Joseph's Children's “Christmas in July” Donation Drive|
St. Joseph's Children's Hospital treats thousands of Tampa Bay’s children every year. Whether they arrive by ambulance, are recovering from open-heart surgery or undergoing cancer treatment, they receive the finest medical treatment, emotional support and loving care available. But they have other special needs - play and distraction from their illness - that are met with the help of generous people throughout the community.
“Medical settings are a new, unfamiliar world for most children,” said St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital Child Life Supervisor Kelly Outlaw. “Providing them with fun activities like art and music therapy, developmental play or movie nights can bring a momentary escape from the hospital experience and their illness.”
Join St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital’s “Christmas in July” donation drive and help provide entertainment and comfort to pediatric patients throughout the year.
