Balloons are flying not just at the hospital but throughout our family of services. Miracle Cookies are being sold by the dozens! Miracle Marigolds have been purchased and are growing in Memorial employees flower pots and gardens!
Jessica and Stormi from Cornerstone are selling balloons, cookies and marigolds with close to $300 already raised. Debbie Paganelli and her Miracle Team at The Springs will have sold over 12 dozen Miracle Cookies by next week. Volunteer Lauren Jones has sold over 1,000 Miracle Marigolds!
Special THANKS to all who have donated for individual balloons! BIG THANKS for BIG BALLOONS to The Reckin Crue, Patient Access, Mary and Maternal Services, Administration, Dr. Bernfeld and Dr. Eider that hang by Into the Brew!
Please, give a special “Atta, girl!” or “Atta, boy!” to the gals and guys at Into the Brew and Memorial Café for being a voice for the kids and asking for your support when you grab your coffee or a meal. And to Pam and her volunteers in the Gift Shop selling Miracle Marigolds. They are on the front lines for this cause and truly ARE Miracle Makers.
There is still lots of room for more balloons and remember if your department raises $100, Memorial cinnamon knots will be delivered in June. Mark your calendar for CHEESE ZOMBIE day on May 31 – proceeds from all Zombie lunches sold will be the final donation for the month.
Next time you walk through the hospital, imagine yourself as a parent climbing those stairs or waiting for the elevator to carry you up to 3rd floor NICU or pediatrics. Seeing ALL of those balloons is a like a little hug from the Memorial employees saying, “WE CARE!” And you do.
