In the world of healthcare, the impact of community is immeasurable. As Thanksgiving approaches, we reflect on the strides we’ve made in transforming hospitalization for children this year. Our hearts are brimming with gratitude for those who have played a pivotal role in our journey. This Thanksgiving, we extend our deepest thanks to our donors, volunteers, partners, and board members, whose unwavering support has enabled us to carry out successful missions, maintain programs and training, and fund positions that make a tangible difference in the lives of young patients and their families.

At the heart of our mission are the passionate individuals who open their hearts and wallets: our donors. Your generosity and dedication is the core of our organization, allowing us to provide resources, training and education that change lives. With your support, we are able to create a healing environment for children facing challenging medical journeys. Your donations bring smiles and comfort to children across the globe. As one parent shared with us, “Resources and toys provided by Standish Foundation were very important for my kid. She had to go through lots of painful procedures and surgeries. But having someone who cared about her psychosocial needs and having a colorful place, where she could feel safe, fully express herself, relax, play, laugh, and move around was what truly helped her in this journey.” Without your financial support, none of what we do would be possible.

Volunteers are the soul of our organization, giving their time, skills, and compassion selflessly. Whether carrying out our programming, assisting with administrative tasks and social media, or organizing fundraising events, your dedication knows no bounds. Your commitment echoes the sentiment that it takes a village to change the world, and we are profoundly thankful for your invaluable contributions.

Our partners, be they other healthcare institutions, businesses, or community organizations, form the bedrock of our success. Collaborations forged in the spirit of shared purpose amplify the impact of our initiatives. Through these partnerships, we’ve been able to expand our reach, improve our services, and create a network of support that stretches far beyond our walls.

Last but certainly not least, our board members. You are the visionaries guiding our ship through uncharted waters. Your strategic insights, governance, and commitment to our mission have been instrumental in steering us toward successfully impacting children around the world.. Your dedication goes beyond mere oversight; it is a passionate investment in the well-being of the children and families we serve.

To our donors, volunteers, partners, and board members: your actions have spoken louder than words. Together, we are transforming hospitalization for children, one act of generosity at a time. THANK YOU.
