At Hope Link, we know what it’s like to be in the hospital for long periods of time with your child. It can become isolating, frustrating and exhausting in every possible way. Hope Link’s Carebasket Project allows us to uniquely love on families who are currently dealing with a serious pediatric hospital stay. Our goal is to bring a little life, love and encouragement to the patient, the caregivers and the siblings.
Most of our Carebaskets are given out through the Child Life department at OU Children’s Hospital; however, we do provide baskets to other hospitals and facilities as we are able. Our Hope Link Carebaskets are full of goodies for the patient, based on their age and gender. We also include items for caregivers and siblings, offering support and encouragement to the entire family.
This project runs on donations and is only possible because of the generosity of those within our community. If you, your organization or group would like to donate to the Hope Link Carebasket Project, please contact us. We would be more than happy to take the assistance!
