Valley Children’s Hospital provides vital pediatric medical care for children. Since 1988, Valley Children’s has partnered with ABC30, the Fresno Bee, and numerous businesses and volunteers to arrange Kids Day. This is one of the largest fundraising events in the Central Valley and hosts more than twenty communities to help raise funds to support Valley Children’s greatest needs.
Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning hosted the Madera site location. We partnered with Alegria Guild of Valley Children’s Hospital as the main hub for our volunteers. The volunteers started to arrive at 6 o’clock in the morning to check in and pick up their postcards to sell for Kids Day. Children and adults lined the sidewalks and intersections of Madera to raise funds and awareness for Valley Children’s Hospital and the kids of our Valley. It was such a fantastic day to partner with our local businesses and youth in Madera.
We’d like to extend a big “thank you” to St. Joachim School and its 7th and 8th grade classes. These amazing kids were the main selling force in our community. They won the Middle School Challenge for the highest sales in the Central Valley. So many of our volunteers have a personal story or tie to Valley Children’s Hospital, and this is their chance to show support and to give back.
We’re looking forward to 2024 and again working with Alegria Guild and Valley Children’s Hospital to help grow the volunteer list and increase sales in Madera.
