The season of giving is officially upon us, and there are plenty of ways you can support children in the hospital. As a charitable organization, donations to Norton Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Hospital Foundation may be tax-deductible.
You can make a difference from the cozy comfort of home while sharing a meal with family and friends or by celebrating with childhood cancer fighters.

- #GivingTuesday – Nov. 28
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. It’s on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and big shopping days Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Consider making a gift to the Children’s Hospital Foundation to help support a child who will spend their holiday season in the hospital.
‘Tis the season!
Thank you for thinking of our patients and their families this holiday season! For more information, call the Children’s Hospital Foundation at (502) 629-8060.
For the gift-givers
Way FM Santa’s shop –
Join 105.9 Way FM and Old National Bank to help stock Santa’s shop at Norton’s Children’s Hospital. For kids who are in the hospital at Christmas, one thing they miss is the joy of giving gifts to their loved ones. So when you donate presents, the shelves fill up, and kids get to experience generosity themselves by “shopping” for their families. The goal is 1,059 gifts, and you can drop yours off at Louisville-area Zaxby’s and Old National Bank. For all the details, visit WayFM.com .
