The Chatham Twig was founded in 2010 and now is a large group of over 60 members who are active monthly at Goryeb Children's Hospital, The Valerie Center, and The Carol G. Simon Cancer Center. The Twig is involved with both hands-on projects and fundraising. Meals are delivered to the PICU monthly and for special holidays; the Goryeb pediatric playroom is decorated four times per year and patient goody bags are distributed during decorating days. Twice annually, the members host an art therapy program reception for cancer patients at the Simon Cancer Center. Members also make no-sew fleece blankets for pediatric patients, conduct various in-kind collection drives and generally help wherever is needed with special events and ongoing programming. Members are proud of the gifts given to the hospital each year since the Twig's inception. The Twig has funded a variety of different initiatives over their eight-year history including iPads, infant sleeper sacs, high chairs, IV poles, snack carts, bereavement gifts and resources, pet and massage therapy programs, supplies for art and music therapy programs, support for the palliative care Liam’s Room, and for sending children with cancer to summer camp. These endeavors totaled over $40,000!
