Caring for a sick child
Caring for a sick child can be stressful under any circumstances. For families with limited resources, being at the bedside of a hospitalized child may require taking time away from work, arranging care for siblings at home, and investing in transportation, hotel stays, and meals on the go. Managing household expenses under these circumstances can be particularly challenging, and support from organizations like Silken Twine can have a big impact. Since beginning their work in December of 2019, Silken Twine Foundation has been able to assist more than 50 families at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) with grocery store gift cards to help them manage costs while caring for their sick children. On behalf of these families, we extend our gratitude.
