OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois Pediatric School Program Wishlist

School Supplies Drive 2021 Information

As you can imagine, parents have a million worries when their child is in the hospital. But keeping up in school shouldn’t be one of them. That is why we have the Pediatric School Program at OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois.

Our teachers work directly with over 385 different schools to ensure each child in the hospital gets what they need to succeed in school including reading and writing assignments, tests and lesson plans.

But we need your help! Our Pediatric School Program needs school supplies to help our patients keep up with their homework and schooling while they are inpatient at OSF Children’s Hospital. From pencils, to folders and everything in between – our kids need your support this school year!
