Hope and Healing Comfort Kits

100% Raised
$16,524.16 donated of $10,000.00 goal

A sincere thank you to everyone who supported hope and healing this holiday season. Due to your generosity and compassion, we have exceeded our goal of $10,000 and 400 Hope & Healing Comfort Kits for children receiving services through the Child Advocacy Center! Funds exceeding our $10,000 goal will directly support children and family programs provided through the Suzanne Gresham Center.
This holiday season, give hope and healing to children by making a donation to support Meridian’s Child Advocacy Center Comfort Kit project. Our Child Advocacy Center, located at the Suzanne Gresham Center, works with children who have experienced trauma, whether it be from any form of abuse (i.e., physical, sexual, or emotional), neglect, substance use, domestic violence, or other harmful situations. Since its inception, our center served over 2,000 children in need.
The kit includes a blanket, stuffed animal, and other age-appropriate activity items to help the healing begin. Treatment goes far beyond our initial meeting with the child, however, the offer of immediate comfort makes a huge difference towards the direction of positive healing.

  1. I am donating because I am able to. I see the importance in helping children through what they have. My daughter is now 3 years old and I am a single mother and I see everyday how living without her father affects her and how hard it is to just be okay each day knowing that your child misses her father and you can only do what you can do.
