    Batson Adopt-A-Floor Program

    The Adopt-a-Floor program helps families whose children are hospitalized for extended periods of time.  

    Family members don't always feel comfortable leaving their child to go buy lunch or find a snack machine. It can also become a financial challenge when hospital stays are long and mom or dad is forced to leave their job to care for the child.

    We ask participants to "Adopt-a-Floor" for one week, whether one week a month, one week a quarter or just one week a year.  During that week, you would provide pre-packaged snacks that do not require refrigeration such as soup, fruit bowls, pudding, crackers, granola bars, fruit bars, and other canned items. To supply one floor for a week with one person from each room getting 2 snacks a day would require 350 snack items.

    To choose a week and get information about dropping off the items, please contact Volunteer Services at 815-8277.
