A warm, cozy blanket can make quite a difference for children facing tough circumstances like foster care or homelessness. That's why we include a blanket in each Care Kit we deliver. Use these easy-to-follow instructions to make blankets (typically made from fleece fabric). When you’re finished contact us to coordinate delivery.
We have limited space and availability to host groups at our office. When you come to the office, you can count inventory, stock shelves, and/or build Care Kits – putting the blankets, pajamas, hygiene items, books, and other age-appropriate items into the bags. If you’re interested, please contact us.
If you'd like to get a scout troop, sports team, youth group, or other organization involved in supporting Cerner Charitable Foundation, you can host a collection drive. Throughout the year, nearly all of our programs accept in-kind donations to be able to provide children and families with educational materials and comfort items.
The items needed vary. Please contact us to find out what is currently on our wish list and to coordinate delivery.
Each year the Community Ambassadors (formally known as Court) raise funds while promoting the foundation’s mission in our community. This elite group of business-minded and philanthropically-driven professionals is vital to our fundraising each year. With each member achieving their $5,000 goal, the 2021 group fundraising goal of $100,000 will be easily achieved. These necessary funds will help the foundation close the gaps in healthcare for children around the world to support First Hand, an essential Cerner Charitable Foundation project.
If you have any questions, would like to nominate someone, or are interested in becoming a Community Ambassador, please contact us.
