Long Branch, NJ – The Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center recently received a $10,000 donation from the Wave of Hope Foundation, a non-profit foundation dedicated to helping those in need.
Every June, Wave of Hope hosts a carnival in collaboration with teachers from Long Branch to raise funds for children in need. Wave of Hope decided this year to support local organizations and chose The Children’s Hospital to be one of the recipients of the funds for the second year in a row.
“We are so grateful the Wave of Hope Foundation has chosen to donate to The Children’s Hospital again,” said Meg Fisher, MD, medical director of The Children’s Hospital. “The carnival is a wonderful effort on the part of the teachers and students in Long Branch to make a difference in the lives of those in the community. These funds truly help the children we treat here at The Children’s Hospital.”
Last year’s donation from the Wave of Hope enabled The Children’s Hospital to purchase laptops, educational and entertainment apps and a Medikin™ Doll, an interactive teaching tool for children that provides patient education for a variety of medical procedures.
