Knitting for Noggins
Since the beginning of our program, we have collected over 250,000 hats to keep our kids' heads warm. Help make a difference in the lives of patients and families at Arkansas Children's Hospital! Knit or crochet hats for children of all ages through our Knitting for Noggins program.
Each year our talented circle of volunteer knitters and crocheters create amazing hats for the kids at Arkansas Children's Hospital. This year we would like to honor their efforts with a design contest. If you would like to enter an original design for consideration, please click here for more information. Every hat created not only warms the heads of our patients, but also brings out big grins, too!
We will collect hats now through March 2014. Please feel free to mail or drop off your hats: Arkansas Children's Hospital, Volunteer Services, 1 Children's Way, Little Rock, AR 72202. Please click here to download and print a donor form to bring with your hats (please provide us with an accurate number of hats you are donating).
Festival of Stars Music Performances
Arkansas Children's Hospital is again celebrating the season by hosting the Festival of Stars. This festival is a time for ACH to celebrate patients, families, donors, and volunteers. Festival of Stars musical performances will be scheduled in the ACH lobby December 2nd through December 20th. We are looking for groups to be musical performers! Performances will be scheduled for 45 minutes (30 minutes to perform and 15 minutes for set-up/clean-up) and performance times will be scheduled as follows:
December 2-6 – Performance times are 11:00 a.m., 11:45 a.m., or 12:30 p.m.
December 9-12 – Performance times are 11:00 a.m., 11:45 a.m., or 12:30 p.m.
December 16-20 – Performance times are 11:00 a.m., 11:45 a.m., or 12:30 p.m.
One of the most valued donations is the donation of time. The Festival of Stars is a great opportunity for groups to share their talents with the patients and families of Arkansas. If you know of a group interested in performing, please contact Melissa Wolfe in Volunteer Services at 501-364-1825 or at WolfeMB@archildrens.org. With your help, we can continue to offer care, love, and hope throughout the holiday season.
