Susquehanna Health Foundation asked our department leaders to share their wish lists — items that operational funding cannot cover this year. The Foundation is asking the community to provide the necessary funds, or a portion of the funds, to purchase the items below. If you would like to make a gift to purchase one or more Wish List items, please use our donation form and note in the comments section which item(s) you would like to fund.
Gas for Cancer Center Transport Van
UPMC Hillman Cancer Centers in Williamsport and Wellsboro
One of the greatest needs for patients in our region undergoing cancer treatment is transportation. Your gift will help patients in need travel to their treatments.
Comfort Basket for Families of Organ Donors
Intensive Care Unit at UPMC Williamsport
Staff members know the impact of providing a comfort basket to families of organ donors. These baskets include toiletries so family members can remain close to their loved one, inspirational items, grief support material, a handmade blanket, a Willow Tree figurine, and a keepsake representing their loved one’s heartbeat.
Books for Children
Pediatric and Emergency Departments
Children are often afraid when they come to the hospital. When children aren’t feeling well, a simple book can brighten their day or provide parents with a way to calm them. Your support will give children a book to read while they’re being cared for and that they can take home with them after their visit.
Seascape Magnetic Play Table
UPMC Williamsport Emergency Department
Being at the hospital can cause children to feel anxious. Your gift will provide a large play table for the emergency department waiting room. This magnetic under-the-sea-themed table will allow children to play and express their creativity while they wait.
