Learn More and Be Involved
Through the Wish Gift Program, the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital Foundation provide donors the opportunity to purchase identified tangible items needed by departments and programs at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital. These items bring joy, support and comfort to our patients while meeting the donor's wishes to make a difference and to touch the lives of thousands of patients and families each year.
