Welcome to our fundraiser page. The Irving Strong Community at Irving Elementary School in Indianola, Iowa are working on something special that will make a difference for kids in our community – We are going to become Shining Stars by raising funds to help patients and families at Blank Children’s Hospital!
Blank Children’s was built in 1944 and is the only hospital in Iowa solely devoted to caring for children. Each year, Blank Children’s touches the lives of more than 80,000 children across our state through inpatient treatment, the pediatric cancer center, clinic visits, transport and outreach. Last year, Blank Children’s helped a child in each of Iowa’s 99 counties.
Raising money to support Blank Children’s is very special to us. Many of the programs and services that make Blank Children’s Hospital such a special place for kids are only possible because of donations and support from people like you and me! One of these programs is Child Life. From helping children know what to expect during cancer treatments or playing games to distract them from a procedure, to helping classmates understand what their friend is going through and helping families remember they aren’t alone in their journey, Child Life is there.
We are asking you to support the important work of Child Life, patients and families at Blank Children’s by making a donation to our fundraising page. Please let us know if you have any questions at IrvingStrongPTO@gmail.com Thank you for helping make a difference for kids right here in Iowa! Whether it's helping start new programs, purchasing life-saving equipment or providing comfort when it's needed most, donors like you brighten the days of children and families at Blank Children's Hospital!
