Feeding Families of Children in Hospitals

At this time, we have enough snack and meal bags assembled and we must watch the expiration dates before we fill more. Please stay tuned for future meal bag assembly dates.

There are several ways you can help put a smile on a child’s face and lift up their spirit!  Please contact Janet Frazier or call (925) 584-4086 for details on the items below. 

Bear Jamboree

Show how much you care with the Gift of a Bear! Donate Teddy Bears (or other stuffed animals).  This is a great way for a group of people and/or children (i.e. boy scouts, girl scouts, church group, work group) to collect teddy bears/stuffed animals for the Bear Jamboree.   

  • Teddy Bears/stuffed animals must be brand new
  • Not over 12” tall 
  • Please leave the tags on, so the hospitals know they are brand new and not played with 

Cozy Comforts

Blankets made with your loving hands provide warmth, security and comfort to warm the hearts of seriously ill babies and children in hospitals.  We are in need of the following items:

  • Knitted and/or crocheted blankets
  • Fleece blankets
  • Hand sewn and/or quilts

Crafts from the Heart

The Network of Care provides craft kits to children in hospitals, so they can focus on creative activities with their siblings and family who visit them.    We are in need of the following items:   

  • Brand new crayons 
  • Colored construction paper
  • Stickers
  • Coloring books
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Zip lock bags – gallon size

Bear Jamboree, Crafts from the Heart and Cozy Comforts are programs of The Network of Care.
