    USA Children’s and Women’s Hospital TreeHouse and ChildLIFE

    The Treehouse at USA CWH in Mobile is where children who are hospitalized for extended periods of time can keep up with school work while they are in the hospital. Mobile and Baldwin County teachers work with the treehouse to provide educational materials for students throughout their hospital stay. ChildLIFE helps provide children with basic entertainment while they are hospitalized. Due to Covid restrictions, many donations are on hold and fundraising events have been cancelled. This has led to a reduction in items incoming into the hospital. Every month we will list items that are in “Critical Need” for the children at USACW. These items will be due the last school day of the respective month (Sept 30th). 1 Hour 10$ 2 Hours 20$ 3 Hours 30$
