Leprechauns step up to help
During this difficult time when families have lost income and jobs, and are in need of food and medical treatment, the Foundation has contributed gift cards for distribution to pediatric families and patients who are seeking help at area hospitals.
Information furnished by MetroHealth showed us how families, hospital personnel as well as the community at large, are in dire need of assistance. As I write this, I am overwhelmed at the need as well as to the amount of people who are affected.
While I was working a seasonal job we were instructed on how to sanitize, to keep safe distance and ultimately, to stay home. I am safely at home, have stayed away from grocery shopping and restaurants. Now, even as businesses are opening up, this information is still very disturbing.
We still need donations to help the hospitals we serve, and prayers that this pandemic will stop taking lives. Thank you for your continued support, and please stay safe!
Special thanks from MetroHealth

We wanted to send a heartfelt thank you to The Leprechaun Foundation for your very generous donation of gift cards for pediatric patients and families at MetroHealth. During an especially tough time, your continued support is beyond appreciated.
Because of your thoughtfulness and commitment, pediatric patients and families that need support with groceries will be able to receive that support. This will allow families to focus on their families and child’s health.
Being in the hospital is scary enough for a child and their family, but even more frightening now. You continue to touch our families each step of the way on their journey – making such a difference for them.
On behalf of the Department of Pediatrics and Child Life and Education, we can’t thank you enough! We hope you are staying well.
