As our organization grows we hope our website will grow with us. We hope once families have recieved our services they will come back to visit the website and let us know how our gift helped them, even in the smallest way. Our goal is to make a difference in any way we can, to take some of the stress away we parents experience when dealing with our children being sick. So please come back often to visit our site to check on our progress and growth!

Catalina's Gift along with the Elizabeth A. MacDonald Foundation hosted a Thanksgiving Feast for families that were in the hospital Thanksgiving Day. All the food was donated by generous family and friends of both organizations. Originally, the plan was only to feed the families in the Pediatric Unit and the NICU but there was such an abundance of food that we were able to feed other hungry families in other units. The event was such a success! It was such a wonderful feeling to see the appreciation in the eyes of so many parents. We cannot wait to do it again next year! A big THANK YOU to everyone that participated and donated items! We cannot do what we do without all of you!

Catalina's Gift will be hosting a Santa's Christmas Workshop on Christmas Eve at Kaiser Permenente for the parents with children in the hospital. The parents will be able to take a break in Santa's Workshop sipping on hot cocoa and treats, shopping for a special Christmas gift for their child and wrapping it up especially for them. If you are interested in donating gifts, baked goods or cocoa, tea or coffee, please contact me so we can make arrangements.
