On Tuesday, September 17, 2019, the Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope (AAFH) made a delivery to Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Chicago, IL. Yoli- AAFH President delivered 30 Alyssa Starter Art Kits (SAKs) to four staff members: Darlene Kelly-Director, Recreation Therapy as well as with Jamie Scholl-Child Life Specialist, Amanda Hogle-Recreation Therapist and Mary McCauley-Donation Coordinator.
Darlene stated the Shriner’s Hospital has many patients who love art and music and thanked us for visiting and donating the Alyssa SAKs which will be given to young patients being treated there.
The kits come in different formats to appeal to different ages and interests of the patients – everything from adult coloring books to drawing and journal kits.
We are grateful to know that Alyssa’s spirit continues to positively impact others through her love of the arts.
