Comfort Kits

For more than eight years, the Comfort Kits program has brightened the lives of thousands of children who are hospitalized or undergoing medical treatment. Each Comfort Kit is a unique gift packed with items specifically designed to bring hope, spiritual reassurance, and smiles to youngsters, parents and medical professionals alike. 

In August of 2013, we achieved the major milestone of providing our 100,000th Comfort Kit. It is our goal that every hospitalized child in need of comfort and support, receives this special gift, packed with God’s love. With your help, we believe we can reach our goal of impacting and uplifting the lives of hundreds of thousands of children and their families.
