During the summer, Cooley Cares for Kids raised over $3,000 to improve the emergency department experience for children and their families. Several local businesses participated in this annual fundraiser that benefits child-focused initiatives at the hospital.
Our Special Thanks To:
The Cooley Dickinson Gift Shop
Finck & Perras Insurance Agency
Recognizing the special needs of pediatric ED patients, Cooley Dickinson is creating a new pediatric area within our Emergency Department which will feature two child-friendly rooms, a distraction cart which relieves stress, and medical equipment and supplies in multiple sizes, since pediatric patients can range from infants to high school football players.
“We are thrilled that the store’s latest community initiative has benefitted our local children and hospital,” says Joe Romanos, Merchandising Manager at Cedar Chest, “Our donation is a significant one for a small local retailer like us. We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.”
