Comfort Care Packages
A Comfort Care Package is the combination of a blanket and a book or a bear and a book that is donated to a child in a hospice or palliative care program in the State of Ohio, whether they are a patient in the program or the family member of a patient.
The blankets are donated to us from the Columbus Chapter of Project Linus. Project Linus is a National Organization that makes blankets for children in need. To contact a Project Linus Chapter in your area, visit their website at www.projectlinus.org. We have a special message in each Comfort Care Package to show our support to each child.
The message for each child reads:
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends;
they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors,
and the most patient of teachers. ~Charles W. Eliot
We hope this Comfort Care Package brings you
Smiles on your sad days,
Warmth on your lonely days,
Confidence that tomorrow will be better.
Won't you help us bring some comfort to a child who needs it?
