ATLANTA AND BUFORD, GA… VoiceNation, the industry leader in live answering and virtual receptionist services, has made the hospital stays of dozens of youngsters at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (Children’s), a little bit brighter.
May 19, VoiceNation hosted a Luau-themed party in “The Zone” (the dedicated play area) at Children’s Scottish Rite hospital for 25 pediatric patients (of all ages) and their families. Everyone was adorned with leis and enjoyed games, prizes, crafts, gift bags and plenty of food.
“We wanted to show our support by providing a fun diversion for these brave, young patients. Most of the children in attendance were between six and 12 years old, and despite what they were going through, brought a lot of positive energy. There was a lot of excitement in the room,” said LeeAnna Channell of VoiceNation.
Through the Employee Volunteer Program at VoiceNation, Outreach Coordinator Amber Mooney coordinated the party with VoiceNation team members LeeAnna Channell, Emily Everett, Brian Martin, Caitlin Redd, Caitlin Blanton, Marie Owen, Dominique Newton and Caprece Scott.
The festive children’s activities included pineapple bowling, octopus ring toss, and shark attack corn hole. The children were also able to craft jellyfish to hang in their rooms and create their own lei necklaces.
“Despite everything they are going through, the kids still like to play, laugh and do crafts,” said VoiceNation’s Dominique Newton. “I feel that they really enjoyed the activities, and one little girl even mentioned that it felt good that people wanted to help them.”
“The VoiceNation team made a tremendous impact on more than 25 of our patients and their family members at Children’s. Because they hosted such a great patient event, kids who are going through what might be the most challenging time in their life had smiles on their faces,” said Michelle Bennett, Program Coordinator at Children’s. “At Children’s, we know there is more to getting better than just seeing a doctor, which is why the generosity of companies like VoiceNation is so important to us. Thanks to VoiceNation for partnering with us in our mission to make kids better today and healthier tomorrow!”
