-Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is inviting supporters to participate in its inaugural Thank a Caregiver initiative in honor of National Nurses Week, May 6-12, and National Hospital Week, May 9-15.
Individuals may go to www.chla.org/givethanks and create a thank you note to be shared with CHLA caregivers. Supporters may choose from three designs and write a personal message of thanks to CHLA’s compassionate pediatric caregivers whose commitment to caring for sick, injured and hospitalized children did not waver during the pandemic. The initiative runs April 26 – May 14.
“We are so proud of the extraordinary efforts our team members exhibit every day towards caring for our pediatric patients,” says Nancy Lee, RN, MSN, Senior Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer. “This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to express gratitude to our caregivers in an easy and meaningful way.”
As part of the initiative, participants will have the opportunity to make contributions in support of the hospital. Ace Hardware has made a $100,000 gift to match donations in support of this effort.
“As the helpful hardware folks, we understand and believe in the power of that helpful spirit,” said Christine Doucet, Director of the Ace Hardware Foundation. “We are so thankful for those who care for others when they need it most and are honored to be a part of this program.”
Throughout the initiative, the cards and their special messages will be shared with CHLA nurses, doctors and other caregivers.
