Each month Team Nicholas founders Bart, Joanna and Maddy Veghts visit the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Edward Hospital in Naperville to bring a meal Donation for the families that have a child spending time in the PICU or NICU. If you are interested in volunteering or donating a restaurant meal, please contact us.
We also bring some wish list items for their families, like snacks, coffee, games, etc.
Each year during the holiday season, Team Nicholas helps the hospital Child Life teams get small Lego sets for the kids in the special procedures area or ones that are confined to their hospital rooms. The Lego drive runs from November through January but we collect Lego sets all year long.
Child Life Donations
Each month Team Nicholas likes to help the child life specialists with much needed items off of their wish list. We also make Easter baskets for the kids and their siblings, teen care bags, celebrate the moms and dads that have to spend the holiday with their child in the hospital and provide a meal as a pre-thanksgiving treat. We are now helping the childlife at Comer, Central Dupage, Edward/Elmhurst, Silver Cross, and we hope to add some more soon!
