We would like to introduce you to a project benefiting patients at Children’s Hospital Colorado Center.
The Association of Volunteers sponsors an annual Holiday Card Project that benefits children undergoing treatment. The project is made possible through the generous sponsorship of community businesses throughout metro Denver.
The Holiday Card Project offers an opportunity for patients (ages 6-18) to express their creativity as budding artists while undergoing treatment.
Cards and holiday gifts are sold during the holiday season. This year's artists have been or are currently receiving treatment in one of the following medical lines of service. Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, Neurology, Rehabilitation, Gastroenterology, Pediatric Surgery, and Transplant. Sales from the 2019 Holiday Card Project will be used to enrich and support the patient and family experience in these departments at Children’s Hospital Colorado.
