Children's Health

Children's Village

With the support of our generous community, Children's Village was able to provide the following services for children with special health care needs in 2018:

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

The gift of growing up. From updated equipment in Memorial's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to early diagnosis and treatment of special needs, your support helps to ensure the more than 400 vulnerable babies served each year in the NICU reach their fullest potential. As Central Washington's only NICU, specialty care is available for at-risks infants. More than a third of those treated were not anticipated to need the extra care and skilled nursing available at Memorial. Your donations truly make a difference in these tiny lives.

Youthworks is a youth empowerment and community service initiative to engage civic- and communityminded young people in a variety of mentoring, volunteering, and philanthropic opportunities.

These young philanthropists are truly making a difference in their community by getting involved in helping those who are in need; whether it is raising money to support important health care programs at Children's Village or volunteering their time.

The Memorial Foundation's YouthWorks program assists teens in the development of lifelong skills such as giving back to their community, grant writing, and mentoring younger students. YouthWorks has its own student council where members can further develop their leadership skills. Students attend The Memorial Foundation Board meetings and hold their own committee meetings.

There are many different ways that schools choose to get involved: school pageants, dance marathons, and volunteering at various CMN events - this is all a part of CELEBRATING PHILANTHROPY, empowering youth, and making a difference. Hardworking high school teens from West Valley, Ike, Wapato, Sunnyside, East Valley and Naches raised more than $90,000 for children's health care programs and equipment in 2018, and they volunteered more than 3,000 hours!
