On Tuesday, Nov. 8, more than 50 members of the Foods 2000, Inc. team – located in the Scottsdale Airpark – joined together at Phoenix Children’s Hospital to volunteer their time to the hospital’s Division of Family Centered Care.

Throughout the course of the day, the team crafted inspiring and motivational banners for several patients’ rooms as well as for the playrooms and various hospital floors, according to a press release.

In addition, the group assembled arts and crafts kits for the young patients to use for art therapy projects, even modeling custom “glue syringes” for young patients to play with, in an effort to make the hospital a little less scary (not to mention shots); checked donated blankets for accidental needles left inside so that patients could receive a soft blanket during their stay; and made activity books so that patients and siblings have something fun and educational to do while they are in PCH care and waiting for surgery.

The team also donated boxed lunches to the hospital staff and families in both the Emergency Department and Dialysis Clinic, respectively.
