The Gift of Candy Cane Lane
For five days in our new community outreach center (Dec. 12-16), Candy Cane Lane, the Floating Hospital’s annual holiday event, hosted 770 family members, providing hundreds of gifts each day, including toys, games, gift-cards, pajamas and desperately needed winter clothing.
In the spirit of celebrating endings, for they precede new beginnings, we look back at the highlights of 2022.
Tribute to Carol Campbell
Carol Campbell, our former Foundation Board Chair, who passed away last month, was all in on The Floating Hospital’s mission. After hearing one of our patients speak at the hospital’s 2015 summer benefit, she implored a friend, a Floating Hospital employee, saying, “Tell me what I can do, how I can help — I’ll do anything."
A look back/a look ahead
With the stubborn shadow of covid still lurking, challenges have continued to arise as we take on new endeavors and seek to expand our existing services. Yet, despite our challenges, we were able to make exciting moves forward thanks to the kindness and support of our friends and donors, and the commitment of our staff.
