Creating Community from a Distance


Patients and families, local businesses, corporate partners, donors, staff and volunteers all collectively power the care that helps kids thrive. Now more than ever, we’re grateful to have such a strong and dedicated partnership in our mission.

During this time of isolation, everyone is looking for ways to stay in touch with the people and causes they care about. In the weeks ahead, we’ll be exploring new ways to connect with one another while also staying safe. Right now, here are five easy ways you can support Gillette and create community together, from a distance:

Engage Online

Every day, we’re working to produce content that provides both vital public health information and fun ideas to keep kids healthy and entertained. From broadcasting live events with our music therapists on social media to sharing tips on keeping kids healthy and happy at home on our blog, we’re creating space to help everyone get through this together.

Make a Contribution

Your support today allows us to react quickly to the urgent needs stemming from this public health emergency. It will help us remain resilient so we can provide essential care for patients while simultaneously partnering on community-wide preparedness efforts. From expanding virtual care efforts to providing financial assistance for patients in need, your donation will make an immediate difference in the lives of Gillette families.

Create Your Own Virtual Fundraiser

Peer-to-peer fundraising is a great option to support Gillette while staying connected to family, friends and colleagues. You can customize your fundraiser to celebrate a special milestone, to honor a loved one or simply to share Gillette’s mission with your network. Get your fundraiser started today.

Browse Our Wish List

In order to protect the health of our patients we are no longer accepting donations at hospital or clinic locations, but we still welcome items shipped directly to the hospital via our Amazon Wish List. The toys, games and activities that bring kids comfort are still vitally important—and shipping them directly to us allows you to bring joy to our patients while still protecting their health.

Share Your Gillette Story

Nothing is more powerful than your story. Whether you let us know why you donate or share the ways Gillette’s care has made a difference in your life, we want to hear more about what this community means to you. In the weeks ahead, we’ll all be looking for some inspiration. Send your stories, pictures and videos to We may feature them in future communications to the community, or share with the providers as they work to keep kids safe and healthy throughout this crisis.
