Chai Lifeline Launches Coronavirus Arts & Crafts Drive for Quarantined Children




Chai Lifeline Canada has launched an arts & crafts drive to help families across Canada with hospitalized or home-bound children during the coronavirus pandemic.

Our goal is to bring children and their families in need a measure of comfort and to reassure them that they are not alone in this time of crisis,” said Mordechai Rothman, Executive Director of Chai Lifeline Canada. “While our hundreds of volunteers are currently limited in their ability to serve families in our usual manner due to precautionary measures related to the virus, this initiative serves to continue to deliver our trademark joy to isolated children in quarantine, in hospitals or at home.”

If you are able to donate supplies, Chai Lifeline asks that only new arts & crafts projects (suitable for children of all ages) are shipped to, or dropped off at, Chai Lifeline Canada 300A Wilson Ave., Toronto, Ontario, M3H 1S8.

Chai Lifeline Canada is a leading national children's health support network, providing social, emotional and financial assistance to families of children with life-threatening or lifelong illnesses.

The Chai Lifeline office is open 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Fridays.

You can email cageneral@chailifeline.org with any questions.
