Ways your school can give

We offer a variety of programs and ideas that can be customized to fit your school or organization. These programs are a great way to teach your students the importance of philanthropy and responsibility by giving back to kids just like them. Check out some of these opportunities below to get started!

Dance to give

This one-of-a-kind fundraising event is sure to get your students up on their feet! This student-led event brings the school community together to dance, fundraise and impact the lives of all the families and patients at Norton Children’s Hospital. Have a blast while playing games, hearing from patient families and, of course, dancing! (Find out more …)

Dress-down days

This is a simple and fun way to support children at Norton Children’s Hospital. For $1, a student or faculty member can dress out of uniform, wear pajamas or even sport a silly hat during the school day! The funds raised go directly to support an item needed in the hospital. For more information on this fun and easy initiative, contact Courtney Puckett.

Walk-a-thons

Get moving and give back to the patients at Norton Children’s Hospital by hosting a walk-a-thon. Set a course around your school campus, a nearby park or during gym class. Each student is encouraged to raise money to receive recognition and prizes! For more information, contact Courtney Puckett.

Piggies for Preemies

Piggies for Preemies challenges schools and groups throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana to fill piggy banks with spare change to help provide a healthy start for premature babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Norton Children’s Hospital.

Have another idea? We’d love to hear it! Contact Courtney Puckett  with your idea and for more information for your school, PTA, club, athletic team or other group.
