Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation Grants $25,000 to St. Mary’s Hospital for Children to Boost Pediatric Programs


Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation has generously awarded a $25,000 grant to support various pediatric programs at St. Mary’s Hospital for Children. This generous gift will allow St. Mary to expand its services and improve the well-being of its young patients with special healthcare needs.

The Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation is known for its commitment to bringing joy to children facing medical and health challenges. This grant will enhance St. Mary’s Hospital for Children’s Aquatic Therapy program, providing children with a therapeutic and enjoyable experience.

In addition to supporting the Aquatic Therapy program, the grant will enable St. Mary’s Hospital to organize Family Fun Days, fostering an environment of joy, laughter, and connection for patients and their families and providing Halloween costumes to our young superheroes. The costumes not only bring smiles to the faces of the young patients but also contribute to a sense of normalcy during a challenging time.

St. Mary’s Hospital for Children expresses its deepest gratitude to the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation for its commitment to making a meaningful impact on the lives of pediatric patients. The foundation’s dedication to giving back aligns perfectly with the hospital’s mission to improve the health and quality of life for children with special healthcare needs.
