Sip Stands Provide Hope for Patients

Sip Stands

Sips + Snacks = Support for Kids by Kids
Sip Stands are a fun way for kids, families and other groups to host an old-fashioned lemonade (or other popular “sip”) stand, backed by the power of Connecticut Children’s Foundation’s website and peer-to-peer fundraising support team. Sip Stands will benefit the Greatest Need Children’s Fund.

Your generous support of Sip Stands will help the patients and families Connecticut Children’s serves. We provide exceptional, personalized treatment to every patient. Our mission to improve the physical and emotional health of children through family-centered care, research, education and advocacy underscores that commitment.
