A children’s hospital kicked off the holiday season with a plan to help everyone — even those bound to hospital beds — feel the spirit.

Many children being treated at Bethany Children’s Health Center are unable to go home for Christmas. That’s why the hospital is asking for help to make the holidays special.

Patients hovered around the Christmas tree on Thursday as the hospital kicked off the Joy to Christmas campaign.

The campaign is a holiday gift giveaway where supporters can donate basic necessities and toys to the children.

“We use more than 300,000 diapers a year, more than 320 Cetaphil products, and more than 330 tubes of Chapstick,” says Kevin Johnson, an occupational therapist at Bethany Children’s.

He said contributing such items would greatly benefit the hospital and the children.

“We understand that it’s not ideal for anyone to be in the hospital over the holidays, but that’s the reality we’re facing,” Mills said.

120 children are being cared for at the hospital, and many of them will stay there for the entire holiday.

“Christmas is so much more than extravagant gifts,” Johnson said. “It’s the little things. That’s something these kids teach us every day”
