Thursday’s Child funds one meal every month for parents of seriously ill children who are patients at American Family Children’s Hospital in Madison. Each evening meal serves 50-60 people. Thursday’s Child donates $3,000 each year to provide these meals. The hospital itself, through money donated by NFL Alumni, funds one meal per week. Other meals come from organizations like ours.
Board member, Noël Ferguson is on Santa’s team to help make Christmas wishes come true for children who have been referred to Thursday’s Child by area social workers and doctors. In 2021, 170 children were on Santa’s list. Their parents received $50 Penney gift cards for each child in their family, with a $200 limit per family.
