StudentsCare is a 501c3 nonprofit connecting college students with hospitalized children across the country to brighten long hospital stays,
Through our Hospital Buddy Program, children battling long-term illnesses, such as cancer, are matched with college student "buddies." Buddies visit on a weekly basis and engage children in hospital playrooms and at bedside in arts and crafts, reading, games and more! Once paired with a student, long-term patients and families will receive a StudentsCare Comfort Kit. We aim to provide high quality items that will provide comfort to children and their parents/caregivers during long hospital stays. Kits are assembled with love and care and filled with age appropriate toys/activities, toiletry items, cozy socks and hats, and various specialty gift cards, like Build-A-Bear, Amazon, iTunes, and Starbucks for an extra little treat for both parents and kids. All kits are hand delivered by our caring student volunteers.
