El Paso Children's Hospital Foundation Partners with Sunflower Bank to Recognize Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month with a New Art Display

El Paso, Texas – September 7, 2022 – In honor of Pediatric Cancer of Awareness Month, El Paso Children's Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce the unveiling of a special installation at Sunflower Bank, consisting of artwork created by pediatric oncology patients at El Paso Children's Hospital. Through a collaboration with Sunflower Bank, the art display will be available for the public to view throughout this next year at its Downtown branch at 201 E. Main. Additionally, Sunflower Bank has committed $50,000 to support the Therapeutic Arts Program, provided by the El Paso Children's Hospital Foundation.
The mission of the Therapeutic Arts Program is to provide patients and their families with the opportunity for self- expression, empowerment, and healing moments through the arts. Art is particularly helpful to relieve stress in children who are undergoing chemotherapy treatment or transfusions for chronic illness or blood disorders. Creativity can be a vital resource in helping patients to cope with an acute illness. Art and healthcare go hand-in-hand as art enhances the healing environment and overall treatment experience.

What a feast!

Today, The Pizza Joint, El Taco Tote and Don Carbón helped El Paso Children's Hospital celebrate Hospital Week by showing appreciation with some delicious meals donated through El Paso Children's Hospital Foundation. There were a total of 50 meals and 10 XL pizzas donated to feed our healthcare heroes.

If ever there was a time to show a nurse how much they are appreciated, now’s the time.


To that officials and volunteers with UMC and El Paso Children’s Hospital Foundations made care packages to 1,250 nurses at both hospitals as a token of appreciation.

The Foundation collected items for the care packages, with goodies donated by individuals and companies from across the Borderland.

Those who contributed include: Georgina Williams, Western Tech, Pepsi Beverage Company, Superior Health Plan, El Paso Health, Whataburger, Walgreens, Red Lobster at Joe Battle, L’Oreal and Nothing Bundt Cakes.


Marathon Petroleum

Can you feel the love? To thank Marathon Petroleum for its enormous donation of N95 respirator masks, University Medical Center of El Paso's Public Affairs Office unveiled a banner today with signatures from nurses of both hospitals! In the photo, the nurses are wearing simple masks because the N95 masks are used for direct patient care or surgical environments.



Domino's Pizza


Thank you, Domino's Pizza, for thinking of  both the day and night shifts of El Paso Children's Hospital with 100 pizzas for lunch and 50 pizzas for dinner!  That's amore!
