Holiday Week Gate Changes (21NOV2022-15JAN2023)



Comfort Cases Donation Drive

  • Will you show your support this holiday season by making a donation to our Comfort Cases Donation Drive? Comfort Cases’ mission is to inspire communities to bring dignity and hope to youth in foster care through Comfort, Community, Character, and Compassion. They provide children entering foster care with backpacks filled with comfort and personal care items, since often times these children go into foster care with only the clothes on their backs, or given a trash bag to carry their belongings. Please drop off your donations in one of two train boxes located in Peds Specialty or Peds Primary. Donations will be collected until December 16th.
