ELGL to Assist Randall Children’s Hospital This Holiday Season

Posted on December 4, 2012


It was brought to the Emerging Local Government Leaders Network’s attention that the Randall Children’s Hospital Pediatric Oncology Floor needs some extra help this holiday season.

When the unit moved to the new hospital, *all* of their holiday decorations were lost or misplaced.  The floor is bare heading into this holiday season, with young kids scheduled for long hospital stays over the holidays.

There are two ways that you can help:

  • If you are interested in decorating on WEDNESDAY at 2:00 p.m. please email Megan Messmer, ELGL Project Manager, oregonelgl@gmail.com.
  • If you can’t find time in your schedule to help out, please consider donating specifically to help us defer the costs of buying some decorations for the three nurses stations and making them festive for the kids. Email with your donation contribution and we’ll send you a PayPal request as follow-up.

While we realize that this volunteer opportunity is outside of the direct scope of ELGL, we also know that the holiday season brings about the values of community service and outreach that we all hold close to our hearts.  Please consider helping us – either in person or in kind – with this important need this holiday season.

 Questions?  Email Megan, ELGL Project Manager, oregonelgl@gmail.com.
