Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Many kids celebrate the day by sharing cards and treats. Unfortunately some won't be able to spend the holiday celebrating with friends and family.
13-year-old Parker Scott is one of many kids being treated at the Children's Hospital at Sinai. With Valentine's Day around the corner, the hospital is working to spread the love with their "Be My Valentine" program.
“It’s a campaign that we run to raise funds for our children’s hospital," said Marissa Guy, the Annual Giving Manager for the hospital. "It’s also a way for us to make the children who are getting treated here feel special."
Anyone can send valentines to children receiving care. The money will go towards the Children's Hospital.
“It’s a way for others to make the pediatric patients feel loved and know that there are other people that are out there that are thinking of them during this time," said Guy.
Bringing smiles to kids like Parker and making their Valentine's Day a little sweeter.
“I think it’s really special that they do that for the kids to cheer them up," said Scott. "It’s just so kind for the people at the hospital.”
The hospital will be making the special deliveries from now until Valentine's Day. Each valentine costs $5 and can be bought online at www.lifebridgehealth.org/valentinesday
