As the world continues to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, many families are asking what they can do to support our hospital staff. While Boston Children’s is accepting donations, as well as sealed, unused N95 masks and other personal protective equipment, one of the simplest and most heartfelt things families can do is to send a message of support, says Katie Litterer, family partnerships coordinator and mom of two Boston Children’s patients.

Share your thanks

A fun and easy way to cheer on your health care team is by using our Wyng platform. You and your kids can send a general message of encouragement to our frontline workers, or craft a personal greeting to a favorite Boston Children’s staff member.
