Love the Hospitality: Helping provide basic necessities and comforts to families staying in the hospital

 

The problem:

Many families are unexpectedly admitted to the hospital. They don’t have a chance to pack a bag or have the help for people to bring them what they need. Some hospitals are not equipped to handle any needs other than the patients.  

I have gotten near heartbreaking requests from staff not just for toiletry  kits but nursing pads for the new moms whose babies are in the NICU, and chapstick for the patients and parents. Sometimes the littlest things are the hardest to get but very needed. 

My goal is to help fill these requests, and if I can also donate fleece or fuzzy blankets to the families staying there. When we stayed, I would bring my own blanket from home and it brought me immense comfort to rest in something comfortable than the stale thin hospital blankets. 

The Goal:

To collect supplies and donate the first round of toiletry kits (bags with toothbrushes, shampoos/conditioner, etc…) and fleece blankets to Kaiser Roseville by Christmas. All donations need to be in for this by December 13th.

    • We have more coming. Along with chapstick and lip gloss, I have a car full of teethers, baby spoons (did you ever notice the spoons they give you to feed baby food with are huge adult soup spoons? They wouldn’t fit in my baby’s mouth!), toiletry kits, blankets, hot chocolate, and Christmas cards from a 4th grade class on the way!

      • Precious Jen,
        You have made an incredible difference in the lives of our families! Their faces lit up when they were given a ‘parent-love-pack’. Their hospitalized children and siblings received gifts but parents were ‘left out’. To know someone cared and loved them and understood the hardship of being in the hospital with their children really made them feel loved. I shared with them that they were from a family who had a hospitalized child and understood what they were going through. You are such a gift, thank you!

  1. Jennifer, what a wonderful ministry! As one who spent seven consecutive weeks in the hospital with my husband, I have wanted to find ways to help family members who help care for their loved ones in the hospital. God bless you, Jennifer!
