“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!”
