Child Life Holiday Giving

Happy Boy for the holidays.jpgAt this time of year, gift giving is on our minds as we seek to find just the right gift for the people we care about. Think back to the best gift you ever gave someone; what made it so great? Chances are, it brought someone joy, fulfilled a great need, or made wonderful new things happen.

At Golisano Children's Hospital, every gift we receive does that and so much more. As always, our greatest need this holiday season is financial support to help our families during this difficult time.
