Penn State Health Children’s Week raises $93,026

Gifts to Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital totaled $93,026 during Penn State Health Children’s Week, a fundraising campaign held April 3-8, 2023.

These gifts will support CMN’s Patient Assistance Endowment, which provides patients and their families with meal and gas vouchers, medical devices, specialty medication and other forms of relief.

Through the endowment, the Bixler family was able to receive the medication and equipment they urgently needed when their daughter, Cam, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Watch a video about their family’s experience and learn how Children’s Miracle Network helps families facing the unexpected.

“This endowment provides a hot meal for parents who can’t leave their child’s bedside, medication for a child unexpectedly diagnosed with diabetes or a special car seat so a child with a hip cast can travel safely,” said Katie Anderson, director of Children’s Miracle Network. “As this endowment grows, we can continue to help families now and for years to come. Thank you!”

Sponsors of the event included Ace Hardware, The GIANT Company, United Concordia, Shollenberger, Januzzi & Wolfe, LLP, Members 1st Federal Credit Union, Walmart, Inc., McClure Company and Cumulus Media.
