Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Volunteer Event Guideline:
It is our pleasure to welcome you as our guests and we are very grateful to have you join us. We would also like to give you some guidelines to make sure you enjoy your volunteer experience!

Last Thursday, July 30th, we at Children of Bellevue were happy to have volunteers from U.S. Bank as our guests. Over 20 of their hardworking employees joined us throughout the hospital–in the pediatric clinic and on the Child & Adolescent Inpatient Psychiatric Unit–wherein they read stories, face-painted, crafted, tie-dyed, and played kickball. Oh–and they even had a pizza party with the kids!
Children of Bellevue got its start as a group of well-intentioned volunteers who got together to provide entertainment and care to children who were sick at Bellevue hospital. This began the tradition of providing More Than Medicine that we uphold to this day. So thank you, U.S. Bank, for joining us in this endeavor!
If you work for a company that believes in corporate give-back and would like to inquire about volunteering with us, please send an email to Mariadora Saladino.

We would sincerely like to thank all of the donors who have made our Summer 2015 Appeal a resounding success. Thanks to your efforts we were able to raise close to $10,000 to help keep our programs running and keep providing More Than Medicine to some of our most deserving children.
And now for the fun part: as we said in our letters, emails, and on our Dog Days of Summer crowdfunding site, all donations of gifts of $50 or more would be entered into a raffle to win the painting done by Monty the Dog. Well the results are in, and we’re so pleased to announce that Mary Grogan of ttpm toys is the lucky winner!
Thanks to all who donated! Your generosity means so much to us, and especially so much to our children!
