The Foundation accepts donations to provide items for children during their stay or visit to IU Health La Porte Hospital. Items include blankets & stuffed animals, games, videos & toys; books & coloring/activity items and more. Our hope is to make each child's stay or visit a little easier.
The Children's Fund is also used to support the Lil' F.I.S.H. Club. The Lil' F.I.S.H. Club is a health and wellness initiative incorporated into the curriculum of several schools throughout La Porte and Starke counties.

"Lil' F.I.S.H. Club will help me make the right decisions because it has helped me think of the consequences and have enough self-esteem to say 'No' before its too late." - Erin Johnson
