Nationwide Children’s Hospital was founded in 1892 when a group of citizens decided to help sick children. Ever since, we have cared for every child, for every reason. We were built by everyday people helping other people. While recent weeks have been unlike anything we have ever seen, you offered to lend a hand.
You wanted to help so we are launching The Joining Hands Fund: Helping Kids and Families Face Coronavirus. This fund allows each of us to join hands, pitch in, and help in whatever manner we can. Everyone has a role to play in guiding our community through this challenge. The Joining Hands Fund will harness the strengths of people helping other people. This fund will enhance supporting our employees who are so challenged on the front lines every day, as well as patient support for children and families affected, research, telehealth, behavioral health services, and much more. To learn more, please visit The Joining Hands Fund.
We continue to provide the very best outcomes for children with “everyday” serious medical conditions, in addition to ramping up to face the coronavirus. It’s not business as usual for any of us right now. It’s not for you, it’s not for us, and it’s certainly not for our patients. But you wanted to help, as you always do. You are what makes us special as a community. With The Joining Hands Fund, we can all pitch in and help together to make a difference.
If you would like to mail a gift to the Joining Hands Fund, please write Joining Hands Fund in the memo portion and make check payable to Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation and send to:
