When you see this clip, you’ll know just why we started our non-profit, Santa PICsU!

Our mission is to bring “the healing power of giving” to children and families in traumatic situations on a year-round basis. And just because 2020 has been different doesn’t mean we won’t bring JOY to those who need it most!

Every Christmas Eve, our group provides presents and programs to all the children, and a chef-donated meal for the Pediatric Intensive care unit staff at the Akron Children’s Hospital.

Over the years, we’ve helped deliver continued gifts all through the year for the families in need, and larger donations directly to the hospital.

This includes the 2017 refresh on the PICU waiting room, weigh beds, medical tools for doctors, “The Good Cheer Fund” which allows for smaller purchases for the PICU throughout the year, an ECMO simulator system, and a Servo N ventilator for the NICU.

We’re SO proud of all the continued support for this Christmas Eve. To learn more how you can help, visit Santapicsu.com/donate!

“It just gets my heart every single time when I walk into the Pediatric ICU and I see just mountains of presents coming from underneath the holiday tree.
