Letting kids just
be kids

Footprints: Buddy & Support Program is a student-run, 501(c) nonprofit volunteering and community service organization benefiting UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital and the local Gainesville community.


From volunteering in the unit to partnering with local, regional, and national community organizations to do volunteer work, we have the mission of letting “kids just be kids” during their treatment and their illness journeys within the hospital.
