UNC Children’s Hospital

Chapel Hill, NC

UNC Children's Hospital

"This very generous $2500 donation from Hallam-ICS’ 40 Weeks of Giving will support our UNC Children's Say Yes Fund which supports the hospital's greatest needs at any given moment. While we proudly offer care regardless of a family's ability to pay, unfortunately, many families' financial strains get worse when their child is hospitalized. We are able to provide assistance to families who need help making ends meet while their child is under our care by purchasing medical equipment for children with special needs, giving parking and meal vouchers while a child is undergoing treatment, or funding a research project to find better treatments. The flexibility of this fund allows us to adapt to an ever-changing health care environment, ensuring we meet whatever challenge may lie ahead for our patients. Thank you Hallam-ICS for helping us “Say Yes” to our children in need—we are incredibly grateful for your support."

"UNC Children’s provides “the highest quality, family-centered care to kids from all 100 counties throughout North Carolina and beyond—always regardless of a family’s ability to pay.” As a parent of two healthy children, I can only imagine how difficult it must be for families whose children need extensive medical care. Knowing there is a place where they can receive this care without the added stress of how to pay for it is invaluable. The hospital also creates a warm and fun environment for the kids to help them enjoy their stay as much as possible. With the tremendous services provided to families by UNC Children’s, I am more than happy to nominate them as a recipient for the Hallam-ICS 40 years of service, 40 weeks of giving campaign. "
