A Heartfelt Thank You from Maddy’s Dad, Daniel

Holiday donors broke records this year, giving more than a million dollars to our year-end fundraising efforts.

Comfort & Joy volunteers collected 4,000 toys and care items to ease stressors for families and kids at the hospital. As the pandemic surges with no end in sight, we rely on your generosity to help families like Maddy’s through these rapidly changing times. They cannot wait for equitable access to critical pediatric care. And because of your support, they don’t have to. We truly are stronger together.

  • 1,700+ people and partners donated during the holiday season
  • 560+ first-time donors contributed 20% of the total funds raised — incredible!
  • Comfort & Joy supporters gave $88,000-worth of toys and care items
