Hear from an All-Star Family:

Thank you so very much for the $200 gift card. It will help alleviate some of the costs we have endured driving to and from the hospital. Upon receiving the orange envelope, our son had been readmitted to the hospital after just being there 44 days. Thank you so much for supporting families that are going through difficult times.

Hear from an All-Star Family:

“The first time our social worker brought up help from Pinky Swear, we were in denial thinking we would be in and out in no time. Then we realized it was going to be much longer term and we decided to apply for a mortgage payment. The mortgage meant that we could be focused on our family and our child that was sick."

Hear from an All-Star Family:

“THANK YOU! My daughter has been in the hospital for a long time. I was craving chocolate so I ran to the snack machine which cost me $5. But then, our nurse told me about the Pinky Swear Pantry. These snacks have meant the world to me. Thank you for making this momma’s night a little easier."
