Shifting Our Focus Through The Holiday Season!


Thanks to YOUR amazing generosity, our item donation drive has been such a HUGE success that we can now shift our focus through the holiday season to providing financial support to the families of critically ill children being treated at CCMC!

Having a critically ill infant puts an incredible financial strain on the infant's family. Beyond the medical expenses, there are many other unexpected expenses including lost time from work, travel expenses, parking expenses, food expenses while at the hospital, etc. 

Through Doing Good In Her Name, you can help support these families in two very special (and tax deductible!) ways:

(Keep your receipts)
Every gift card donated, will be distributed to the parents/family of a critically ill infant being treated at CCMC. Gift Cards in any amount are greatly appreciated from the following establishments. These cards are easiest for patients' families to use, as these establishments are located at or near CCMC.

*Dunkin Donuts 
*Gift Cards To Area Gas Stations (Sunoco, Shell, Valero, Getty, Gulf, Mobil, BP)
*J Restaurant & Bar (located directly across from the hospital at 297 Washington St. Hartford, CT 06106. Their number is 860-527-7764.)

Tax Deductible donations can also be made and will be used to provide the families of critically ill infants with parking passes and food vouchers for the hospital cafeteria, as well as with financial support. 

Parking at the hospital is quite expensive, and we know from personal experience what a great help these passes can be in alleviating some of the financial burden that families with very sick babies are under. 

Cafeteria food vouchers help a great deal too, making the prospect of grabbing a quick bite much easier for these families during those times when it is impossible to get away from the hospital for a meal. 

If you would like to make a tax deductible monetary donation, please make your checks payable to The Connecticut Children's Medical Center Foundation and reference "Doing Good In Her Name" in the memo line.

Please send your donations to
Peyton’s Pals
Attn: Doing Good In Her Name
P.O. Box 1281
BurlingtonCT 06013

Every gesture, no matter how small, 
has a huge impact on these families lives!

Thank you in advance for doing your part to help these families through this upcoming Holiday Season!
