Did you know that October 1-5 was Pediatric Nurses Week? Here at Little Smiles we never miss an opportunity to show our nurses gratitude. During this week, with the help of our Little Smiles volunteers, we delivered gifts to more than 600 nurses in pediatric hospitals from Miami to Fort Pierce. It’s a small token of appreciation for all of the amazing work pediatric nurses do every single day.
Little Smiles’ Orlando Ambassadors, Julie and Angie, had the opportunity to represent Little Smiles at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children by providing pizza for the Childhood Cancer Survivors Luncheon. These brave kids have overcome such challenges, and we are honored to celebrate them!
Often times children are hospitalized during their favorite days of the year, their BIRTHDAY! At Little Smiles, we make sure they are celebrated with balloons, cupcakes, and of course a birthday surprise! It is so fun to see their little faces light up when they see what their nurse has requested for them. (Especially for this mini Moana fan!) Happy birthday sweet girl!
The kids at Real Life Children’s Ranch have been guests of Little Smiles at many of our signature events this year. We decided they deserved an event of their own! Together with the generous volunteer help from Palm Beach Atlantic University’s Girls Basketball Team, we created a fun field day at the ranch. Snow cones, water slides, bounce houses, Nerf Gun fights, and custom tie-dye shirts made for a fantastic field day!
We just launched our treasure box sponsorship program! With the generous donations from the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, we were able to place five new treasure boxes in facilities throughout Palm Beach and Dade counties.
These boxes are filled with small toys for children undergoing procedures or waiting in emergency rooms. They are great prize incentives for our pediatric patients! If your company would like to sponsor a treasure box, please contact Little Smiles Program Manager Kaylin Bassett at email@example.com for more information.
