Introducing The Holiday Card Project, benefiting patients at Children's Hospital Colorado:
The Association of Volunteers sponsors an annual Holiday Card Project to benefit 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 aged 6-18 to express their creativity as budding artists while undergoing treatment.
Artists have been or are currently receiving treatment in one of the following medical lines of service: Breathing Institute, Burn Center, Gastroenterology, Hematology, Kidney Center, Mental Health, Neurosurgery, Oncology, and Orthopedics.
