Operation Backpack

Our children need backpacks!

You read that right. And no, it’s not September.

Each year, residents of the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center go to almost 1,000 clinic visits. This number is growing with our recent 32-bed expansion. Our children require backpacks year-round to carry their everyday essentials on field trips, home visits and, of course, to their medical appointments.

“We want to have a dignified, safe way to transport supplies that our children may need during these outings,” explains Lisa Poskanzer, Vice President of Operations at the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center. Fundamental items for our pediatric population may include diapers, extra clothing, feeding supplies, medications and a toy that brings reassurance or joy. “All of our children need to have these items anytime they leave our facility for hygiene and comfort.”

Commence: “Operation Backpack” – a new fund we’ve created with the mission of providing each resident with a backpack that can be filled with the comforts of “home” anytime they need to leave us for a few hours or a few days.
