A publication for the members of Seattle Children’s Hospital Guild Association
Like most parents of infants, Carly and Ryan Christiansen are there when their son Gavin needs consoling at night. But for the Christiansens, being there means sleeping at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
Children’s social workers help families like the Christiansens manage the strain of illness and hospitalization. They can sometimes provide essentials like food and transportation, but the needs of families at Children’s often outweigh the available resources.
Operation Family Care, last year’s all-guild heartwarming drive to collect groceries and gift cards for families at the hospital, helped fill this gap.
