PICU stands for Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and for many parents, the walls of the PICU can feel like they are closing in on them. Time seems to pass unnoticed, days seem to be gone and unaccounted for, and some parents don’t remember when they have last eaten. This is the life of a PICU parent, and hopefully, you know nothing of this world.
Our PICU ‘Take Care’ Program is a way for our community to do something SWEET for those who find themselves in this world.
Once a month, SJGF visits our local children’s hospital to deliver the PICU parents a catered lunch and all the necessities from home they never had time to pack ‒ leggings, razors, adult coloring books, face wipes, hair ties, snacks and more. We have truly thought of everything!
Businesses, schools, churches, sports teams, families all assist us with these efforts and are crucial to the programs success. SJGF has made helping simple if you would like to shower some much needed TLC on these weary families.
If your group would like to have a "packing party", please contact Sara@sweetjuliagrace.org for more info.
