We are fundraising to help our students THRIVE!

It's BACK TO SCHOOL time for our students at Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children! We begin this new school year with the premise that each student can and should be allowed to reach his or her fullest potential. Our goal is simple: to help each student adapt to the least restrictive environment possible at school, at home and in the community so they can THRIVE.

A generous donation from you will provide new adaptive educational and recreational equipment and supplies as well as critical programs and services otherwise not available through Massachusetts state funding. Donations will also provide our students with resources for their mental and emotional well-being. For example, your donation will provide:

  • Adaptive recreational/gym equipment so even more students could participate in sports like basketball and floor hockey. We'll be able to purchase items like crash pads and new adaptive toys for our younger students to play with.
  • Pappas with the opportunity to: 1. Purchase a new Obi independent feeding device, a groundbreaking device that makes independent dining possible for students with upper body extremity functionality limitations. 2. We would also like to purchase a variety of switch devices to provide adapted access to iPads for recreational and educational activities for the students.
  • Outside theatrical and musical performers, such as Young Audiences of Massachusetts and the Tanglewood Marionettes, to come and provide entertainment for the students.

Your gift will also allow Pappas to continue to provide for our student’s personal needs and emotional well-being by providing:

  • Personal Grooming including haircuts for every student at Pappas.
  • Gifts for each of the students’ birthday.
  • Senior Class Gifts: Pappas purchases gifts for all of the graduating seniors, such as a framed diploma.
  • Senior Prom: The Massachusetts Hospital School Foundation provides funding for Pappas to plan and implement a senior prom for the graduating seniors. We need funding for decorations, food and beverages, and professional hair and make-up services for the girls.
  • Opportunities to participate in school related activities and field trips.

Will you partner with us by making a donation in support of Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children? Every dollar raised with go directly to providing the educational and recreational equipment and personal care items this vulnerable population needs and deserves. Your donation will guarantee our students will continue to thrive!

Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for the students at Pappas. Because of your support, we can continue to provide the very best care to these deserving young people.
