Our Comfort Build-a-Bags are a powerful way to help children through a difficult time. It can be scary in the hospital when you are young.
Children experience stress and anxiety during their medical treatments and hospital stays. When stress gets to be too much, it can take a toll on their health and wellbeing. That’s why effective stress relievers such as our Comfort Build-a-Bag program are essential in restoring inner peace and mental health.
To date 4,742 Comfort Build-a-Bag's have been delivered to children.
Recently we have been able to go back inside the hospital with covid testing for each volunteer, read about the first visit with characters back into the hospital here.
Comfort Build-a-Bags bags are designed specifically for each child, and their parents. Volunteers, fill bags with coloring & activity books, stuffed animals, blankets, playing cards, gift cards, toys and many more various items.
Our great volunteers and donors help make this all possible. Our Kohl’s team has been a great help by donating time to help create custom bags, and delivering them to the children. Thousands of bags have been given to children in the hospital. Our ultimate goal is to go national, delivering smiles to kids across the U.S.
