Support the UNM Children's Hospital through the Feeding Hope Project
Food insecurity is defined as a lack of available financial resources for food. For families at the University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital, food insecurity can happen because of an unexpected medical emergency like the hospitalization of a child.
When your child is in the hospital, nothing else matters. You are by your child’s side for every test, procedure, and doctor check-in even if that means missing work or meals. The UNM Foundation hopes to alleviate some of the stress parents feel when faced with this situation through the “Feeding Hope” initiative. This campaign provides parents and caregivers meals to allow them to stay bed-side with their children. It’s one less worry for parents and guardians—they’re able to focus their energy on getting their children well. This is a perfect time to support the Feeding Hope campaign. A generous anonymous donor has provided $10,000 as matching funds for Feeding Hope. All gifts will be matched up to $10,000.
The University of New Mexico Health System is the only level one trauma hospital and the safety net hospital for the state. The UNM Children’s Hospital is New Mexico’s only dedicated Children’s Hospital and serves as New Mexico’s only 24/7 Children’s Intensive Care Unit, which treats the region’s most critical pediatric cases. Your support of the UNM Health System reinforces our mission of ensuring accessible, affordable care to all in New Mexico—thank you.
