Alyssa Starter Art Kits (SAKs) were delivered to the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL on Monday, February 18, 2019. Executive Officers of Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope: Yoli Alvin-President, George Alvin-VP/Treasurer and accompanied by Beverly Hann-volunteer met with a Child Life Staff member-Tricia Tyoe.

The SAKs included five different variations consisting of acrylic, watercolor, drawing, ocean coloring book and journal kits. We hope these kits will help bring a bit of joy and hope to those children going through a difficult time during their treatments for life threatening diseases.

At Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, Tricia is the newest staff member of the Child Life Department. Tricia is looking forward to sharing our Alyssa brochures with the Oncology nurses and staff to ensure more children are able to take advantage of the Alyssa Foundation music and art gift recipient programs.

Tricia was grateful for the SAKs and stated they would be welcomed by the children receiving treatment at the hospital.

We look forward to continuing our relationship with Child Life at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.
